Curb Open Dress Rehearsal

Take a look at what goes on behind the scenes at our Classical Series concerts. Through this program, student groups in grades 5-12 and undergraduate college classes can experience an entire dress rehearsal or attend the first half of the rehearsal.

IMPORTANT: The first half of dress rehearsals typically last from 10:00AM to 11:30AM, at which time there is a break. Groups cannot leave the hall in the middle of a working rehearsal, but are welcome to leave at the break. To learn about rehearsal etiquette and expectations, click here
