Rehearsal

Rehearsals are held at:

Goodwin Auditorium
Daniel L. Goodwin Hall of Business
Benedictine University
Lisle, Illinois

Review the rehearsal etiquette so you are aware of our expectations.

Rehearsals are conducted on Monday evenings and a detailed calendar can be viewed and synchronized with your mobile devices HERE.

  • Concert Orchestra
    • 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
  • Symphony Orchestra
    • 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

If you are unable to attend a scheduled rehearsal, or most importantly, an orchestra performance, you must notify your absence as soon as the conflict is identified. You should send your absence report before 5:00 pm of the rehearsal day. Please see the Absence Report Procedure.

In some cases, you may not be able to report your absence before the scheduled rehearsal time. Even if it is too late for the rehearsal, a retroactive report is still necessary.

“No show” without any absence report will not look good on your record. Since the attendence report must be seen by the conductors before each rehearsal session begins, it is important that the report be made by 5:00 pm. If you can’t make the deadline, fill out the absence report after rehearsal is over.

Youth Symphony of DuPage strongly urges all members to participate in their school bands and orchestras. We thank the many school orchestra and band directors who encourage their students to advance their skills by joining YSDP.
