Dear WAYO musicians,

Welcome to our newest members and welcome back to the rest! We are looking forward to a wonderful year of rehearsals and concerts and are happy to have you on board.

Member Portal
The WAYO Member Portal is your first port of call for all information including rehearsal schedules, practice parts, and orchestra lists. You will also find a copy of all emailed notices in the portal for your convenience.

When are rehearsals?

  • The first rehearsal is Saturday 13 February 9am – 12pm.
  • Lateness is not tolerated; please respect your conductor and fellow musicians by arriving at least 15 minutes before the start of rehearsal to allow time to unpack, tune, and warm up.
  • It is a condition of membership that members be picked up promptly at the end of rehearsal (within 15 minutes).
  • Any absences must be reported with as much notice as possible so that we may make arrangements. Please email our temporary Operations Manager at ben.burgess@wayo.net.au with absentee notices.
  • A full rehearsal schedule is available here in the member portal under your specific ensemble.

**PLEASE NOTE: In the interest of productive and focussed rehearsals, parents are not permitted in the rehearsal rooms. Staff will always be present to help and supervise, so pick-up and drop-off only thanks!

Practice Parts, Orchestra Lists & Wind/Brass Rotations
These materials can be found here in the Member Portal under your specific ensemble. Please check out your practice parts before the first rehearsal so we can all enjoy a productive morning!

All the best, and see you on Saturday 13 February!
