Fields marked with a * are required.

Please initial each of the following GYSO Policies. For example, Frank Elliot Smith would initial FES.


The most valuable contribution musicians can make to their ensemble is their presence at rehearsal. Membership in the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra is a commitment to faithful, consistency, and punctual attendance. It is expected that rehearsals will be a high priority in each musician's life since each musician is holding a valuable place in his/her ensemble. Musicians in all ensembles are allowed no more than two absences per rotation, regardless of the reason. This includes any absence, such as illness, school or other music activities, family vacations, homework and tests, college visits, religious holidays, etc. Absences will not be marked excused or unexcused, but simply as an absence.

 


All tuition is non-refundable. All funds received by the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra MUST be by credit card or by check payable to GYSO. Please be sure to include the musicians's full name(first and last), and purpose of payment on each check or money order. Tuition may be paid all at once, in the payment plan outlined below, or if extenuating circumstances exist, in an individual plan. Our organization has made a year-long commitment to the development of each musician. Therefore, even if a student discontinues participation in his/her ensemble, unpaid tuition will still be due. Tuition: $140 deposit due 8/21/16, $140 is due on or before 09/18/16 and the balance of $140 is due on 10/16/16 for a total of $420 for the year. If tuition is not paid in full by 10/16 a $10 late fee will be accessed, and GYSO will place a hold on your music for Concert Cycle #2.

 


GYSO musicians are ambassadors for the organization, and the behavior of each musician reflects upon the entire group. Each student will be expected to use good manners, display common courtesy, and show consideration for others. A successful GYSO experience requires a cohesive group in which each individual accepts and follows the same standards of behavior. As a member of GYSO, you will also be representing GYSO in your schools. We expect the same code of conduct that is adhered to at GYSO to be adhered to in all school settings.

 

 


GYSO is dedicated to educating a diverse group of musicians, GYSO affirms its commitment to a community in which all students and staff are accepted as individuals, independent of ancestry, social background, race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, physical characteristics or personal beliefs.

 


Participation in school music organizations is required, provided one exists.
