Parking

We expect that most students will be dropped off and picked up each day, which means parents will only need to park during check-in/auditions and the finale concert. If a student will be driving themselves, they will need to use metered parking for Friday night, but should be able to find free parking for Saturday and Sunday.


AUDITIONS/ORIENTATION:

Orientation and Percussion Auditions, please park in metered parking, available at a rate of $1.25 per hour and cash only. There is a walkway to the James C. Olsen Performing Arts Center from the Cherry Street Parking Garage. Parking will be free in all legal campus spaces on Sunday during the Finale Concert.

Winds and Strings Auditions, please park on the fourth or fifth floors of the Rockhill Parking Garage.
