Encino Community Center

Encino, CA 91316

The Orchestra Year:

Our season runs from September through April and is divided into two semesters. Students auditioning for the fall semester do not need to reaudition for the winter/spring semester. Additional students may join mid-year for the winter/spring semester as orchestra openings permit. Students are expected to continue their instrumental study while in the orchestra.

Rehearsals:

Note: the following is NOT the schedule for fall of 2018 due to construction at ECC. The schedule for normal Sunday rehearsals this semester will follow the one listed below for Sept 16. There is no pot luck this semester.

Rehearsals usually take place on Sunday afternoons from 1:15-5:00pm. Except in the case of illness, permission must be obtained at least two weeks in advance to be excused from a rehearsal, and at most two rehearsals will be excused in a single semester. Attendance at the scheduled dress rehearsal, which takes place one week before the first concert each semester, is mandatory for each orchestra member.

Performances:

We always give two performances at the end of each semester and occasionally schedule additional special performances. Attendance at every scheduled performance is mandatory for each orchestra member.

First Rehearsal and Potluck

(Exception: for fall 2018 see the schedule listed under Aug 26.)
The first rehearsal of each semester starts with a put luck lunch at 12:30 and general meeting which parents as well as orchestra members should plan to attend. This is followed by a regular Rehearsal.

Rehearsal

(Exception: Spring and fall 2018 the times are different - see the entry for Sept 16)
Normal rehearsals are on Sunday afternoons from 1:15-5:00pm. Except in the case of illness, permission must be obtained at least two weeks in advance to be excused from a rehearsal, and at most two rehearsals will be excused in a single semester.

Mandatory Dress Rehearsal

The "dress" rehearsal, which takes place one week before the first concert of each semester, is a regular rehearsal except that attendance is mandatory for every orchestra member. (No special clothing is required.)

Concert

Attendance at the concert and the rehearsal before the concert are mandatory, of course. Special clothing is required for the concert, and this will be described at least a week earlier. Since only one orchestra rehearses at a time, not everyone has to show up in time for the first rehearsal. Details will be added as they become available.
