Rehearsals take place Monday evening at 6:30pm at Horace Mann Middle School in Charleston. Always check the calendar to make sure a rehearsal is scheduled; conflicts with West Virginia Symphony Orchestra rehearsals or Kanawha County school holidays may create an open Monday with no rehearsal scheduled.
