Rehearsal Schedule and Calendar

The health and safety of our student musicians and staff remains the KSYO’s priority for 2021-2022. If it is not safe for us to hold rehearsals, we will not, and we reserve the right to cancel rehearsals at any time during the 2021-2022 season. More information for parents, students, and staff will be available following KSYO auditions:
