Evening Rehearsals

Additional evening rehearsals may be added to the Wind Ensemble calendar in preparation for the rigorous performance schedule. Students must attend all evening rehearsals or communicate with Mr. Wiernusz well in advance of the rehearsal.

in the fall during the first two weeks of school. Additional preparation may be asked of students,

depending on the results of spring auditions.
