The society has its own headquarters situated at 10 rue Pré-de-la-Fontaine, Meyrin which brings together all the parts of the society.
Please note the Covid regulations that must be followed when using HQ.
The largest rehearsal room complete with a small stage and grand piano is the main area in which the full cast, choral group and orchestra rehearse. It's also an area to host meetings, musical evenings and social events. Lighting, a sound system and projector are all available.
There are also smaller rooms which provide the possibility for principals or soloists to work separately.
The workshop houses set construction, the props store and lighting and sound equipment.
The comfy social area allows the cast to relax when not rehearsing, complete with hot and cold refreshments, mini kitchen and microwave.
The Costume Store
GAOS has an extensive costume archive which we constantly amend and update for shows.
Putting on your own show and need some costumes? We can help! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about costume hire.
A new multi-level visitor car park (built on the old visitors parking site) has now opened next door to GAOS HQ, straight ahead after entering the main entrance of the Satigny Business Park.
Parking here costs 1 CHF per hour up to 3 hours and then 2 CHF for each additional hour after.
Additional parking is also available in the multi-level parking on Rue du Pré-Bouvier, which is a 3-minute walk from the main entrance to the complex.
If you're using GAOS HQ during the working day especially, we strongly advise that you do not park alongside the building.
Parking is also available in the loading bay at the back of the building for activities at weekends and in the evenings. Please be aware that GAOS is not liable for any fines received for parking in private bays at Satigny Business Park.
