Rehearsals:
Musicians should plan to arrive at rehearsal 15 minutes early to allow time to unpack, tune, and be ready to begin rehearsal promptly on the hour.  Weekday rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings, with the exception of the dates noted in RED.  Occasionally the ensembles may hold sectional rehearsals which will alter the start and/or end time of a specific rehearsal.  Notices of any change in rehearsal time will be provided in the weekly email blasts.  Weather related cancellations (i.e. snow dates, power outages) are based on the Ridgefield Public Schools building closures.

Rehearsals for the 2023-24 season will be held in the music wing of East Ridge Middle School except when school events require the space.  Alternative locations are generally in other Ridgefield Public School buildings as indicated.
