Philharmonic Absence Form: 2018-19 season
All GTCYS members are expected to attend all rehearsals and concerts. Consistent attendance at rehearsals, dress rehearsals, retreats, and concerts is essential to GTCYS’ educational and musical quality. Remember, consistent rehearsal attendance benefits not only you, but also your orchestra, since practicing at home is about learning your part, and rehearsals are about learning everyone else’s part.

If you must be absent, complete this form as soon as you know of your expected absence. Please remember that students should make every effort not to be absent for sectionals. Dress rehearsals, concerts, and retreats are mandatory. If students must be absent for a chair seating audition, they must send a recording in advance to by the Friday preceding their expected absence.

• 2 ABSENCES during the first concert period: September 11 – December 2 concert
• 2 ABSENCES during the second concert period: January 8 – February 24 concert
• 2 ABSENCES during the third concert period: February 26 – May 5 concert
