Open Rehearsals

FREE for middle school and high school!

This is a unique opportunity to have a behind-the-scenes look at how orchestra musicians, conductors, and guest performers prepare for a concert. Students experience the orchestra in a more relaxed and informal atmosphere. Open rehearsals generally last for about an hour and give students the chance to see the orchestra, conductor and guest artist in their final dress rehearsal.

Schools may reserve a maximum of 125 seats (both students and teachers) to each rehearsal. We request one teacher per 10 students. Seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Cost: Suggested donation of $2 per student.
