For those of you that wish to visit the corps' rehearsals, here is the list of the intended housing sites/times for the corps.

Please observe the following rules if you visit a rehearsal:

  • Respect the corps at all times. If they say that it is a closed rehearsal and not open to the public, then please leave them alone. Stay quiet and out of their way. Silence all cell phones and children.
