Please have a pencil with you at all times.
Care of Music
Members sign out all music at the beginning of each semester and hand in the folder with all music at the end of the concert.
At least $10 will be charged per part for the replacement of any music signed out to you that is damaged or lost. Note that replacing one part may require buying a whole set.
Rehearsal Schedule and Online Calendar
- Music for the following week's rehearsal will be posted following every rehearsal.
- All members are responsible for checking the online calendar before purchasing airline tickets or making other travel arrangements.
All questions/notifications regarding attendance/absence should be made in writing and directed to the conductor. In an emergency, you may leave messages at 781-736-3328 or 978-808-0547.
Anyone not on stage ready to play before the tuning note is sounded is deemed late.
Two unexcused latenesses = one unexcused absence.
Two unexcused absences = ineligibility to play the concert.
Ineligibility to perform = no credit.
Unexcused absences are not permitted the week of the concert.
All matters regarding attendance or lateness are covered under the academic honesty requirements of the institution.
A grade will be derived based on factors such as class participation, performance ability and especially attendance.
Resolving Class Conflicts
Chemistry labs and study groups for other classes often conflict with ensemble rehearsals. In most cases, it is possible to transfer to a different section whose labs meet at a different time.
At the beginning of each semester, check the exam schedule for your classes and notify the personnel manager/ director of potential conflicts. (Exact exam dates may not be available from your professor until later in the semester.)
The music department will contact the professor to see if a make-up can be scheduled for you.
Advanced Notification of Absence/Lateness
Send a written request to the director at least 10 days in advance of the date of the request.
Valid excuses are illness and family emergency.
Invalid excuses are exams, papers due, review sessions, extra classes, appointments with faculty advisors, trips to the airport, a friend's crisis, engagements with family or friends, appointments with doctors and dentists, conflicting class or work schedules, and the like.
Last Minute Emergency Notification
Call and leave a message at 781-736-3328 or 978-808-0547 as soon as possible.
Arrange to get your folder to rehearsal.
