This is the ESYO Absence Request Form. All musicians are required to fill out and submit a request when missing a rehearsal or a concert - or when they need to arrive late or leave a rehearsal early. Absence requests via email to your conductor/orchestra manager are not acceptable forms of absence notices anymore!
All requests for missing a rehearsal must be done at least 2 weeks in advance, unless due to illness or last-minute emergency. For illness close to performances or repeated health-related absences, we require medical documentation.
All principals and section leaders also must speak to their conductor before signing out.
Please review the Attendance Policy in the handbook if you have any further questions. Thank you.
It is your responsibility to pay attention to how many absences you have taken! You can check your attendance record with your ensemble manager.
