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. Tickets are not required for this event. There will be a welcome/check-in table for donors for $500 or more at the Civic Auditorium doors. You may make your donation any time until doors open! Covid-19 public health and safety guidelines will be followed, including requiring proof of full vaccination for all audiences, staff, and artists. Masking will be required indoors at all times. Read our full Covid Policy here.
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!
New for 2022: a new dimension to the Open Rehearsal experience: the option to livestream! Be sure your are on our mailing list to receive schedule and links!
