YOPS Newsletter August 2022

2th August 2022

Dear Parent/Guardian/ YOPS member, 

We hope you have had an enjoyable break over the summer.

As September approaches we look forward to welcoming you to the new term ahead and with that in mind have attached a list of our rehearsal and concert dates so you can pencil them into your diaries.

I am  delighted to confirm that  the YOPs Orchestra will still  be based in Beechwood Parish Community Centre , Mountain View Road , Ranelagh.  .

It would be very helpful if you could confirm by email  before Saturday 3rd September 2022 if you plan to return to YOPS this year. This will help us in our plans and preparations

 Rehearsal Times for each orchestra:


YOPS Senior Orchestra rehearsal at 9.30-11.30 am 

YOPS Junior Orchestra rehearsal  at 12.30 -2.30 pm 

YOPS Music Folders

Students  that returned  their old YOPS music folder will be able to  collect their YOPS folder with the new sheet music from their conductor.

 Any student that did not return their YOPS music folder, must bring it along  to the first rehearsal on Sunday 11th September 2022 hand in last years  sheet music to the conductor and collect the new sheet music for 2022-23. 

Orchestra Membership  Fees

This year’s membership fee is €140 per student and €120 for a second family member. 

Fees must be paid by Sunday 11th  September 2022. Payment can be made directly before that date to the
