Rehearsal Schedule and Calendar

Explore this Section

Because the health and well being of KSYO students, families, and staff is of paramount importance, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the KSYO 2020 Spring series. This will include the rehearsals from March 23 through the concert on April 27.

Weekly rehearsals are held on Monday evenings at West Valley Middle School.  Two Sunday rehearsals, on November 17, 2019 and February 16, 2020, are included below.
