Rehearsal times and programs are subject to change without notice.
OPEN REHEARSALS + TALKS
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. These free events arenow available in person and live-streamed to you anywhere in the world!
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. If you are viewing online please visit our website at any of the designated times. Thank you!
Saturday, August 5, 1:30-2:30pm Meet the Composers Free! Attend at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium or watch via livestream.
Covid-19 public health and safety guidelines will be followed for ALL Festival events. Masks will be required indoors. Read our full Covid Policy here.
