Attendance at all rehearsals is very important to the success of the Bloomington Normal Youth Symphony. Quality performance of difficult literature can only happen with dedication to the group.
1. The only excused absences are for illness, hazardous driving conditions due to the weather, family death or emergency, religious holiday, or mandatory attendance at a school music PERFORMANCE.
2. If any absence occurs, the absentee must provide a written excuse giving the member's name, date of absence, and reason for the absence. This must be provided to Mrs. Bryant BEFORE the date of the rehearsal. If, due to sudden illness, this is impossible, the absentee is to contact Mrs. Bryant as soon as possible at 888-NOTE, or the BNYS Manager via email at email@example.com.
3. Any absence other than stated in #1 will be unexcused. If the proper notification of an excused absence is not given, the absence is unexcused.
4. After more than two unexcused absences, you will no longer qualify to be a member of the Bloomington Normal Youth Symphony.
