Rehearsal Schedule

Rehearsal Venue The Orchestra rehearses in the main hall of the Balshagray Centre (formerly Balshagray Victoria Park Church), which is located at Broomhill Cross, G11 7QA, in Glasgow’s West End. This session we will be returning to the Church Hall for rehearsals. Entry is via the second door up the hill on Broomhill Gardens, on the right hand side of the church building. Parking is currently free on the hill and on the nearby streets, but it is a busy area, so parking can some times be tricky! Prior to each concert, the orchestra will endeavour to hold the final rehearsal at the concert venue, to give everyone a feel for the acoustic. Rehearsal Guidelines Please arrive at rehearsals in sufficient time to be ready to start playing at 7.30pm prompt! Rehearsals run until just before 10pm, with a short interval around 9pm, when coffee, tea, hot chocolate and biscuits are available at a small charge. Please bring your own cup if you can, or purchase one of the GCO cups. In order to protect others, it is very important that you do not attend rehearsals if you are unwell, or suspect you may have contracted COVID-19. Face covering are now optional. However, please respect anyone who prefers to continue to wear a mask. The orchestra is responsible for setting out chairs prior to each rehearsal, and for re-instating the accommodation at the end, so if you are able to lend a hand with this, that would be greatly appreciated. Many hands make light work !

Google Poll In order to make best use of our rehearsal time, we are using a web-based chart that allows everyone to indicate their attendance or absence at each rehearsal over the session. The orchestra constitution states that members should commit to achieving at least a 70% attendance record over each session. While we can’t plan for every eventuality, it is important that we all make every effort to be at each rehearsal wherever possible. Members will be given a link to the Google Form in the start-back letter, which comes out in August, and thereafter at the start of each new term. The first time you access the Form, you will need to enter your name in table. Then, for each rehearsal date please tick the box if you will be attending the rehearsal, absent, or not sure. When you are finished, click on the “Save” button underneath the date options, on the far right of the page. To modify your entries (for example, if you find that you can no longer attend a rehearsal), then simply return to the Form using the email link.
