MSYO ABSENCE NOTIFICATION FORM
PLEASE USE THIS FORM TO REPORT ABSENCES AS FAR IN ADVANCE AS POSSIBLE.
Punctual attendance of every musician is essential to the function of the whole orchestra. Please check your schedules at the start of the year, and be sure to notify us of any conflicts as far in advance as possible. Absences due to illness or other unexpected reasons should be reported no later than 8am on the day of a rehearsal. Absences in excess of one per semester will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Excessive attendance issues can result in loss of your seat (you will be moved elsewhere in your section), probationary membership, or dismissal from MSYO. You may not miss a dress rehearsal or a concert. If there are special circumstances that make such an absence unavoidable--such as a school music performance--please notify us at least one month in advance so we can plan for your replacement.
