The WA Youth Orchestras Association is very proud of its record in musical excellence which requires commitment, preparation and consideration of others.
Members are expected to arrive at rehearsals on time. Late arrivals disrupt rehearsals, and missed rehearsals set back the entire ensemble’s progress.
Members are expected to attend all rehearsals and concerts. Special permission must be requested through the WAYO office for any absence other than illness. Lack of attendance may jeopardise a member’s position within their ensemble.
Members are expected to practise their parts between rehearsals and if necessary, take parts to their teacher. ‘Note learning’ at rehearsal is not acceptable – it wastes time and frustrates other players.
Members are expected to respect and act responsibly towards their peers, conductors and staff, their instruments and equipment, and the venues in which we rehearse and perform. This ensures that everybody benefits from the WAYO experience.
The Association reserves the right to exclude from the program any participant who, in the opinion of the Association, jeopardises the safety of others or appears to have rejected the Association’s guidelines. Excluded participants will not be eligible for a fee refund.
