Williamsport Community Band Attendance Policy (adopted 9/20/15) Each member will be required to attend 70% of scheduled rehearsals in preparation of Christmas and Mother's Day Concerts. There are normally 10 rehearsals prior to each concert. That simply means you need to attend 7 of the 10 rehearsals, or sit out that concert. There could always be emergencies, unusual circumstances, etc. that may come up. They will be handled on an individual basis. We hope many of you continue to have perfect attendance and that many more join you.
Schedules and commitment forms will be passed out at the first seasonal rehearsal. Please indicate your participation on these forms when they are passed around. Section Representatives (not the director of Music) will be in charge of in advance problems on any given Sunday. Please report ONLY to them with conflicts (see list below). The representatives will then report each week to Mrs. Susie Kunkle prior to that week's rehearsal.
Our Summer Concert Series will also be handled with commitment forms passed out no later than the Mother's Day Concert. You will be asked to attend as many of these rehearsals as possible. There are usually no more than 2 or 3.
** The Maryland State Community Band Festival, that the band participates in, will always be the 1st Sunday of the first full week of June. Please plan for this well in advance when scheduling Summer activities.
