All orchestra members should report to First Baptist Church (FBC) on Sept. 14, 2020 at their regular rehearsal times for a Mandatory First Rehearsal/Orientation. (Calendars are available under the Orchestras tab). This is our new rehearsal home, so please read the FBC Policies and Procedures carefully so you know where to go and how to check in. Each orchestra will use a different entrance.
At Orientation, Members will meet their conductors face to face, seating placements will be announced, music folders will be handed out, and procedures for each orchestra will be discussed. There will be NO PLAYING at this meeting, so Members do not need to bring their instruments (this week ONLY).
ONE PARENT per Member is invited to attend this Orientation. This will be the only time during the season that parents will be allowed to enter the FBC Buildingn unless they are signed up to volunteer. All Parents who enter the building must have a COVID Waiver signed and on file with the CSOYO Manager. Masks must be worn at all times inside the building, and social distancing will be practiced.
Parents download, complete and bring to Orientation: CSOYO COVID WAIVER
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.
