Summer concerts are directed by a guest conductor. There are three rehearsals for each concert, one in June and two the week of the concert. Musicians must attend the two rehearsals prior to the Thursday concert. For the Christmas concert and the Memorial Day service, musicians must attend all scheduled rehearsals. The dress code is “black and white”: black pants and a white top.
