KJSO Membership Agreement


    As a member of a Kalamazoo Junior Symphony Society (KJSS) Orchestra, it is necessary that I adhere to basic rules of conduct for the total development and success of all orchestra members.  By my commitment to a cooperative and productive atmosphere, I help assure that we will all experience the joy and fulfillment of producing beautiful music worthy of acclaim.   Out of mutual respect for my fellow orchestra members, I will honor the following Mutual Respect Agreement:

    • I will attend, and arrive on time with my music, to all rehearsals, concerts, and events (except in compelling cases of required absence), as well as diligently practice my assigned music, to fulfill my responsibilities as an orchestra member and to ensure the success of the orchestra as a whole.
    • I understand that all electronic devices are to be silenced and put away during rehearsal time.   
    • I understand that participation in disruptive or abusive behavior (e.g. physical violence, sexual activity, emotional abuse, spiritual abuse, unauthorized weapons, hazing, discrimination, harassment, initiation rites, bullying, cyberbullying, theft, profanity, verbal insults, drugs, alcohol, and pornography) will not be tolerated.  
    Failing to keep any part of the Mutual Respect Agreement may result in the removal of orchestra members.

    By completing this form, all parties hereby agree to abide by all the above stated conditions of the Mutual Respect Agreement
