Performance Policy and Concert Dress


Performance Policy

All members are expected to attend every performance. During in-house and public performances, we ask that each member act as an ambassador of the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra.  At all times, the GCYO encourages members to behave in a responsible, cooperative and dignified manner. As a measure of respect for all musicians, the GCYO asks members stay until the conclusion of each concert, performance or event. Thank you! Most importantly ~ ENJOY!
