Our concert season runs parallel to the school-year calendar. Rehearsals start after Labor Day and continue on Monday evenings from 7:15-9:15 p.m. until the December concert. After the winter break, rehearsals resume in mid-January and continue until the spring concert. All regular rehearsals are held in the Music Building, Room 171, on the DeKalb campus of Northern Illinois University. Special dress rehearsals are also scheduled before each concert performance, usually in the concert venue.
Please say, "I Due."
Dues for the upcoming semester are payable at the first rehearsal when you register.
