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.
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.
