Dear YOPS Parent /Guardian/Member,
I hope you and your family are all keeping well.
At this time of the year we would normally be issuing you will dates for the first term however due to Covid 19 Health & Safety restrictions and guidelines we have had to find a larger venue for our orchestra rehearsals. I am delighted to say we have now secured the use of the Beechwood Parish Community Centre in Ranelagh about 600 m from Scoil Bhride.
At the moment we are awaiting an change on group numbers at indoor events and additional guidelines around orchestra rehearsals from the Irish Association of Youth Orchestras (IAYO) before we can confirm our first Orchestra rehearsal but hope we can do so by mid-September.
At this stage however it would be very helpful if you could confirm by email before Saturday 5th September 2020 if you plan to return to YOPS this year. This will help us in our plans and preparations and also allow us to determine how many new students can join us this year.
Our priority is to get back playing orchestral music together, but most importantly to keeping the orchestra members and staff safe and at the end of the year to be able to perform a concert for family and friends.
We look forward to welcoming you all back in the Autumn.
