  3. 50% tuition is due on/before September 1, 2020
  4. 50% balance of tuition will be due in January 2021 - This payment is based on in-person rehearsals. If the schools are not open and the orchestra needs to continue virtually on line, the payment will be reduced.

In person “Face to Face” rehearsals and live concerts will resume as soon as the restriction are lifted.  Rumors are, it could happen as early as November.

When we Start in September - How will it look?
TCSYO will start the 2020/21 season using Zoom rooms. You will be assigned a time to meet with your sectional coach on either a Monday or Tuesday evening depending on what orchestra you are in. Individual sectionals will last approximately 40 minutes and you will be assigned sections of your music to prepare for the following week. During the sectional you will be able to play individually and as a group (off mic).  While the weather is nice, I plan to invite different sections to rehearse with me outside at my home in Oakton, VA, where we would have a lot of room for social distancing! 

We have hired a company for you to practice your music online while watching your conductor. Your opportunity to work during the week with your "Virtual Conductor" will help you prepare for recording a performance tape (right on that website) to upload prior to the December Concerts. All of the individual audio tapes will be professionally streamlined into a master audio to be used during our Live Virtual YouTube Concert in December. Here is a screen grab of the New Jersey Youth Symphony doing a similar performance.
