General Information and Maps
East Avenue Middle School, 3951 East Avenue, Livermore CA (parking lot is in front of the school)
The music room at East Avenue is the usual rehearsal site, but there may be changes if, for example, school activities conflict with orchestra rehearsals. Tuesday rehearsals during concert week, dress rehearsals, and concerts are at the Bankhead Theater of the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center.
Regular Tuesday evening rehearsals (7:15–9:45 p.m.) usually begin in late August, to prepare for a Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center gala in September. Rehearsals follow until early December for a pops concert, family concert, and formal concert. Rehearsals recommence in early January and continue for concerts in February and April until the final concert of the season in early June, except there is no rehearsal in the week immediately following a concert.
There is a dress rehearsal on the Thursday evening prior to each major concert. The formal concerts are on Saturday evenings.
