The MYO attendance policy allows for a maximum of three (3) excused absences per concert cycle. This policy may vary based on the requirements of your ensemble. Any member exceeding this allowance will be notified by email and placed on probation. Members on probation should speak to the MYO Staff and their Music Director regarding their continued participation. The Music Director may ask members to play or sing their parts to determine their level of preparation.
Arriving late for a rehearsal is disruptive. We expect our members to arrive at least fifteen minutes early to check in and warm up prior to the start of the rehearsal. Three (3) late arrivals or early departures per concert cycle will count as one (1) absence.
You are expected to report any absences, late arrivals, or early departures to the MYO Staff and your Music Director. We also take your responsibility in reporting absences into account when considering any requests concerning future placement, financial aid, and merit scholarship awards. You can track your attendance record through your MYO Members Only account on Charms.
