Rehearsals take place Monday evening at 6:30pm at Horace Mann Middle School in Charleston. Always check the calendar to make sure a rehearsal is scheduled; conflicts with West Virginia Symphony Orchestra rehearsals or Kanawha County school holidays may create an open Monday with no rehearsal scheduled.
Musicians! Consider signing up for chamber groups!
November 25: chamber rehearsal is at 5:30. Youth Winds will rehearse 6:30-7:30. Cadets, Youth Strings, Orchestra all begin at 6:30.
Pick up your instrument daily, even if you practice for just a few minutes. It's much better to shorten your practice than to skip days. From Singingwood Music
