v  These times will depend on traffic and unforeseeable events, so we'll need to be flexible. Parents, please arrive for pick-up a few minutes early just in case, or keep in touch via cell phone.
v  We anticipate that the bus will be close to full. If you volunteered to help with transportation at the beginning of the year, I will contact you. Once everyone's permission slip is turned in, we will know if additional transportation is necessary.
v  Please let Julie know a.s.a.p. if you may be able to volunteer.
v  Each musician is very important to our performance. Since this is technically not a school-sponsored activity, their time off from school will need to be arranged on an individual basis. Please use the attached letter to ask to be excused!

To Whom It May Concern:

______________________________ is a member of the Northern Utah Youth Symphony, which will be performing in the Youth Symphony Festival at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City on March 13, 2017. The bus leaves Perry at 11:15 a.m., Farr West at 11:30 a.m., and Riverdale at 11:45 a.m., returning between 5:45 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Playing in a symphony orchestra is the ultimate team sport. Each person is extremely important to the overall sound of the orchestra, especially in a place like Abravanel Hall where the acoustics pick up everything that's there – and amplify everything that's missing.  Please excuse this student from his/her classes on that day.
