Weather cancellations: If the Verona Area School District cancels school or evening activities, VACB rehearsals and concerts are also cancelled.


Being a section leader is an opportunity to get more involved with the VACB. Section leaders help to encourage a sense of community between band members and assist with logistics such as welcoming new members, taking attendance, facilitating sectionals, and coordinating subs when they are needed.

Section leaders have a minimal time commitment outside of rehearsal, typically 10-15 minutes before and after rehearsal. Section leaders are expected to attend almost all rehearsals for the concert.


To provide the best possible band experience for all VACB musicians we ask that everyone registering to play the concert commit to:

  1. Perform in the concert
  2. Attend a minimum of 7 of the 10 rehearsals for the concert

This will help us achieve a high quality performance in the concert, and – more importantly – it will help enrich the rehearsal experience by ensuring that parts are covered and members of the band have the opportunity to connect as musicians.

We invite and encourage musicians who are unable to perform the concert or who would miss too many rehearsals to sign up to sub for a member of your section who will be absent from a rehearsal.
