*Music stands

As noted in the Member Handbook, each member will be issued a Manhasset Voyager Music Stand for use at concerts outside of our home location at the Middle School upon payment of the deposit. You may choose to purchase your own but it must be the Voyager stand for consistency of appearance. "WIRE" stands are NOT acceptable. If you have any questions, please see a board member.  

Inclement Weather

As we enter into the winter, we wanted to remind everyone of our inclement weather policy. If the Sharon Public Schools cancel evening activities, we will not rehearse.* We will send out an email as soon as possible in the event that we cancel rehearsal. We also ask that members use their discretion when it comes to snowy rehearsal nights. We understand that not everyone's situation is the same, and that some members may feel less comfortable driving in the snow, or come from different parts of the state. 

*If we are scheduled to rehearse in another district (e.g. Brockton), we will follow their school schedule.
