BSO Member Information
Updated May 10, 2022
This page contains information for BSO members, such as BSO member events, rehearsals, board meeting schedules, etc.
Rehearsals are from 7:15-9:45 at Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 3031 W. 144th Ave., Broomfield 80023.
Please ensure you arrive in plenty of time to set up and be ready to play at 7:15 p.m.
A rehearsal cancellation (weather, etc.) will be posted to the top of the home page and this page by late afternoon on the day of rehearsal as soon as the decision is made, so be sure to check the website often when there is inclement weather. We’ll also try to email everyone and make calls as needed.
We accept membership dues during the rehearsals.
Once the $100.00 dues are paid or you have paid $50.00 AND signed up to volunteer with the BSO for one hour during the season, OR have requested in writing and been approved by the board for a full or partial dues scholarship , you get $2 off each concert ticket (unlimited).
Revised Member Booklet Paragraph:
“Members will obtain a detailed rehearsal schedule before the beginning of each concert cycle. Please try to attend as many rehearsals as possible. In order to participate in a concert, your attendance is required at the wind or string sectional rehearsal(s), at the dress rehearsal, and at the rehearsal prior to the dress rehearsal. Exceptions to this policy, and determinations regarding substitutes, will be made on a case-by-case basis. (revised Aug. 2017).”
Rehearsal and Concert Info:
Please let us know as soon as you can if you cannot play a concert so our Personnel Manager can secure a replacement. Send an email to the Personnel Manager using the “Personnel” email address noted below.
