Reservation of School Facilities by Non-School Parties
To a reasonable extent, all school performance spaces, rehearsal spaces, and classrooms must be kept available for last-minute rehearsals and meetings. However, there may be times when these facilities could be made available to other organizations on a very limited basis, and generally include a use fee. Please contact the School of Music office at 573-882-2604 for inquiries.
