REHEARSALS

LOCATION: The band rehearses generally every Thursday evening from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM at the Homer High School band room on Route 281 in Homer, NY. Rehearsal schedules are published in the beginning of the year to assist members to plan for suitable attendance.

SETUP/WARMUP: Members are requested to arrive 15 minutes early to help assist in chair/music stand arrangements, location of music folders, and to allow sufficient instrument warm up to permit accurate band tuning.

REHEARSAL PROTOCOL: Rehearsal time is generally at a premium, but should be fun and promote good times among the band membership. However, please be respectful when the Conductor is talking to assure that his instructions are heard throughout the band.

MUSIC FOLDERS: Members are permitted to borrow music folders and must sign them out at the end of the rehearsal in a sign-out book in the music storage box. Members must find a way to return borrowed folders to the next rehearsal, even if not attending the rehearsal. Each music folder represents several hundred dollars in investment, and therefore your diligent effort is required to protect and secure it while in your possession.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Announcements are usually given verbally at the podium during rehearsal breaks. Occasionally, written handouts are distributed during or after rehearsal.

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, gender, national origin, religion, marital status, age, disability, or sexual orientation. This nondiscrimination policy applies to the eligibility for membership and all benefits entitled by membership in the organization.
