The orchestra rehearses weekly, on Wednesday evenings beginning promptly at 7:30 p.m., at Eastern Regional High School Performing Arts Center, 1401 Laurel Oak Road, Voorhees, New Jersey. Rehearsals are held each Wednesday from early September through late May. Dress rehearsals are held on the Friday before each concert, with the occasional Saturday dress rehearsal. The complete season schedule is distributed each summer.
Players are to attend each and every rehearsal except for reasons of sickness, work paid performance with another ensemble, and family emergency. Even if absences are approved, a minimum of four rehearsals including dress rehearsal is mandatory for each concert. For participation in performances, the Music Director and Personnel Director will make this determination.
Good attendance is the keystone of this organization. Rehearsals are to work on ensemble, not notes. An absence means that tempi, balance, rate of accelerando and ritardando, tone, intonation and “fitting in” with the section will be missed. Knowing your individual part does not make you an ensemble player. Only attendance at rehearsals can accomplish this.
