It's that time of year!

Rehearsals begin 6/24 for Chorus and 6/26 for Band

Band 1st Rehearsal:

Band rehearsals are held in the Dryden High School auditorium.  Please park in the auditorium parking lot near the football field.

Registration will be at the Dryden High School in the hallway leading to the auditorium stage.  There will be signs in the parking lot directing you to the proper entrance. In the building, you will be greeted and directed to the registration table.  Rehearsals are on the auditorium stage.   

At the registration table there will be 3 lines, labeled as follows:

 

  1.  Pre-Registered:  Those that pre-registered by email or registration form will have a music folder ready for pick-up.  A name tag will be attached to the folder which can be placed on your music stand.  If a photo release form needs to be signed, that will also be attached to your folder. 

  2. Not Registered, Past Participant:  If you did not pre-register and have participated in the band or chorus in the past, you will be asked to verify or update your contact information on the past participant list.  If a photo release form needs to be signed, you will be given a form.  A music folder will then be assigned to you.  The number of the folder should be noted on the participant list.  A name tag will be made for you. 

  3. Not Registered, New Participant:  If you have never participated in band or chorus in the past, you will be asked to complete a registration form as well as a photo release form. A music folder will then be assigned to you.  The number of the folder should be noted on the registration form.  A name tag will be made for you.   

 

When you are done at the registration table, you may select a seat and music stand that is in your instrument section.  Name tags should be placed over the top of the music stand.

Rehearsals are 7 to 9pm with a short break around 8pm.  Rest rooms and a water fountain are located in the hallway where you entered.

Percussion instruments are property of Dryden Central School District, so please use them respectfully.

Please note:  All music and folders must be returned to the DAIB&C after the concerts.

Chorus 1st Rehearsal:

Chorus rehearsals are located at the Dryden Methodist Church at the four corners in Dryden.  Please park in the parking lot between the church and the Rite Aid store.  Enter at the street-side entrance, that will put you right in our rehearsal space.

The registration table will be located to the right as you walk in the door.  There will be a line for pre-registered members and a registration line for newcomers.  You will pick up your music folder at the registration table.

You may sit anywhere for the first rehearsal.  We have a short introduction session and then we will begin with vocal warm-up exercises.

Rehearsals are 7 to 9pm with a short break around 8pm.  Rest rooms and a water fountain are located in the hallway through the door leading to the rest of the building.

Please note:  All music and folders must be returned to the DAIB&C after the concerts.  If you decide that the group isn't for you, please return your music folder as soon as possible.
