All CSOYO Members must complete their health questions by 12 NOON on Mondays when rehearsal is scheduled. This allows time for all members to be cleared for rehearsal by 4:00 PM. Please set an alarm on your phone and make sure you have submitted your answers online by this time! Thank you!

NOV. 30 at ALL REHEARSALS: Concert Dress Check - NOV. 30
On Monday, Nov. 30, 2020, ALL MEMBERS should come a few minutes EARLY and report to rehearsal dressed in full Concert Dress including socks, shoes, ties, etc. (Please see the Concert Attire information under the Policies Tab). Volunteers will be on hand at Check-In to do a quick inspection. Any member who doesn't dress out or doesn't pass the Dress Check should correct any issues (Parents will be notified) and will be required to dress again at the mandatory Venue Rehearsal on Sunday, December 6, 2020 for reinspection. Members who do not meet the Concert Dress requirements will not be allowed to play on the concert.
Due to our very limited rehearsal time, members should NOT plan to change out of concert dress for rehearsal on Nov. 30.
If you have any questions about the Concert Attire requirements, please see the website or contact the Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THANKSGIVING BREAK: NOV. 23, 2020: NO REHEARSAL

YOUTH AMBASSADORS: This season, ALL CSOYO Members are invited to participate in our NEW Youth Ambassadors Program. This optional program gives Members opportunities to explore arts advocacy skills through acts of service that will encourage the development of lifelong habits of arts support in their adult lives, and we will recognize these acts of service. Read all about this exciting program HERE: CSOYO YOUTH AMBASSADORS
Upcoming Opportunities for SERVICE CREDITS:
Members must submit a Service Report for each service, subject to approval. See the Youth Ambassadors page for available opportunities and a link to the form. (coming soon!)
The CSO is incredibly saddened to report the passing of Floy Wang, former CSO Youth Orchestra Etude and Prelude Conductor, and former violist with the Chattanooga Symphony. In her four decades of living in Chattanooga, she also taught music at the Cadek Conservatory, CSAS, GPS, McCallie, and UTC. She made a lasting impression on the thousands of students she has taught, and will be sorely missed.
Contributions are now being accepted to the Floy Wang Memorial Scholarship Fund.
