Are there rehearsals before the time in Fort Wayne?  No group rehearsals are held, but the students will be provided with their music ahead of time and are expected to work with their director, private teacher or other qualified individual to ensure they know the music prior to the first rehearsal.  Rehearsals on site are meant to focus on musicality and developing the best possible ensemble sound.
