General Information

WCC Academic Arts Building, ground floor, room 104

Dear Musicians and Families,

We are busy preparing for the new season of the GWYOA, and eagerly looking forward to our first rehearsal on September 12th. We ask that you monitor this page of our website, especially as the season approaches for further details.

There are a few items you should be aware of:

  • We will be rehearsing on Mondays at WCC's Academic Arts Building, ground floor room 104, near parking lot #4.

  • Junior Strings musicians arrival: 6:30 PM to unpack and tune.

  • Rehearsal from: 6:45 – 8:30 PM

  • Chairs are provided. Bring instrument, music folder, and music stand.

  • All musicians other than bassists should also have a mute – I recommend the rubber “Tourte” type. Be sure you don't get a "practice mute;" that's for a different purpose. Links for purchasing mute at right.

We will email you more detailed information as we approach our first rehearsal. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me in the meantime.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Jacqueline Stern, Conductor,
