Orchestra rehearsals for the 2020/2021 season will be held from September to June on Monday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 p.m. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be starting with online rehearsals. In-person rehearsals for strings only may start in mid- to late October 2020.
The first rehearsal date and online participation details will be announced shortly.
At present, there are no rehearsals planned for Saturday mornings.
The orchestra performs best when all musicians are in attendance. Therefore, all members are expected to faithfully attend all rehearsals, masterclasses, and concerts, unless prevented by serious reasons (eg. illness or school exams). DYO members are expected to regularly include orchestra music in their daily practice routine at home to ensure that our performances are polished.
DYO Member Handbook 2020-2021
The newly updated DYO Member Handbook 2020-2021 will be available for download shortly. All members and parents should read the DYO Handbook as it contains important information you should be familiar with. In addition, there are two forms in the document which need to be printed, signed and brought to the first rehearsal.
