Open Rehearsals are FREE and begin Sunday, July 28, 2019 at 7:00pm, running almost daily through Friday, August 9 at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, 307 Church Street, downtown Santa Cruz.
You’re invited to discover what increasing numbers of Festival fans have already realized—Open Rehearsals are a dynamic precursor to the concerts themselves. As the community of conductors, musicians, and composers sculpt pieces for performances, you have the chance to watch the music come to life. Wondering what to expect at an Open Rehearsal? Simply enter the auditorium and select your favorite seat! The atmosphere is relaxed, you are free to come and go, but please endeavor to be as quiet as possible, even when the artists are simply talking to each other. The orchestra appreciates your support during these important working sessions! Food and drink are not allowed in the Auditorium, outside of spill-proof water containers. Thank you!
