Orchestra rehearsals for the 2021-2022 season will be held from September to June on Monday evenings from approximately 6:30 pm to 9:00 p.m. Rehearsals will start off as in-person rehearsals. If necessary, rehearsals will switch to online sessions as directed by Durham Region Public Health.
The first rehearsal will be held on Monday, September 20, 2021. DYO members will be divided into two cohorts to maximize spacing in the rehearsal room.
DYO members will be asked to pre-screen for COVID -19 symptoms and should not attend in-person rehearsals should they have any symptoms of illness or have been outside of Canada in the last 14 days. All DYO members will be mandated to wear public health approved facial masks thorough rehearsals except while playing a wind or brass instrument. Extra spacing will be provided for winds and brass members.
All DYO members are encouraged to receive their COVID-19 vaccination if they qualify.
Saturday morning rehearsals may be added in the future. Details will be provided.
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 2021-2022
The newly updated DYO Member Handbook 2021-2022 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.
