Rehearsals

Tuesdays 7:00 – 9:00 PM in the band room at VAHS

Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of rehearsal so you are ready to start on time. You are welcome to arrive earlier if you would like to. The band room is always open at least 30 minutes prior to rehearsal.

Schedule

See the online calendar for the complete schedule of rehearsals and concert dates.

You will receive your folder of music at the first rehearsal of the concert cycle. Your folder includes a “Know the Score” information sheet containing the full rehearsal schedule. Any exceptions to our usual Tuesday rehearsals will be noted.

Rehearsal Attendance

When signing up to play a concert, we ask that you confirm the rehearsals you will attend and indicate any expected absences.

If you will miss a rehearsal that you didn’t mark “Can’t Attend” on the concert sign-up form, please let us know as soon as possible by emailing attendance@vacbmusic.org.

Rehearsals on Election Day

Our Tuesday rehearsals sometimes fall on an Election Day. We strongly encourage all eligible VACB members to take the time to vote, even if it means coming to rehearsal late wearing your “I Voted!” sticker.

If you volunteer on Election Day and will miss rehearsal, just let us know about your absence when you sign up for the concert or by emailing attendance.

Schedule Changes Due to Extreme Weather

Occasionally, extreme weather affects our planned schedule. We will communicate any schedule changes through social media and email.

If the Verona Area School District cancels school or evening activities, VACB rehearsals and concerts are also cancelled. You can find information about school closings on the VASD homepage and on local TV and online media.
