Dear YOPS Parent /Guardian/Member,
I hope you and your family are all keeping well.
At the moment we are awaiting details of the updated guidelines from the Government on Tuesday 31th August 2021 on the reopening of live events and additional guidelines around orchestra rehearsals from the Irish Association of Youth Orchestras (IAYO) before we can confirm the details of our return to live rehearsals, but we would hope to have our first live rehearsal on Sunday the 12th September 2021.
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 for our rehearsal venue
At this stage however it would be very helpful if you could confirm by email before Saturday 4th September 2021 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.
