ATTENDANCE Playing in an orchestra is being part of a team. It is very important that everyone is committed to attending all the rehearsals so that the group can develop as an ensemble and achieve its full potential. In the event of sickness or any unforeseen circumstances which may mean a child/young person cannot attend a rehearsal, please inform the Programme Director Jayne Graham (086 987 3543) as soon as possible.
VENUE We are once again grateful for the support of Dundalk Institute of Technology for providing us access to the PJ Carroll’s Building as a venue for our rehearsals on Saturday mornings. Occasionally during the year, we hold rehearsals at Wellington Hall, Mary’s Rd as and when PJ Carroll’s Building is not available.
