Large Classical Instrumental Ensembles: Absence Request Form

Students are required to submit this forms at least three weeks in advance of the absence in question, though more advance notice is welcome.

Students maybe be excused from a rehearsal in certain cases, but not from a concert.  Situations that merit consideration for an excused absence from a rehearsal include: 

·         important auditions

·         high-level or high-profile performance opportunities

·         major family events (weddings, funerals, etc.)

·         religious events

Situations that are not eligible for an excused absence include, but are not limited to, routine musical engagements (wedding gigs, background music, DePaul athletic bands), part-time jobs, vacations, etc.

Ensemble directors will follow up directly to let you know if the request has been approved. 

In the event of illness or last-minute emergency, please email the director directly before your rehearsal or performance. 
Extended absence/accommodation requests must be submitted to related studio faculty, Director of Orchestral Studies (Jill Williamson), ensemble director, and College Office.
