Curb Open Dress Rehearsals

Take a look at what goes on behind the scenes at our Classical Series concerts. Through this program, students (ages 10 and older, including undergraduate college students) can experience an entire dress rehearsal or attend the first half of the rehearsal. 

Rehearsals start promptly at 10AM. The first half of dress rehearsals typically last from 10:00AM to 11:30AM at the discretion of the conductor, at which time there is a 20 minute break. Groups cannot leave the hall in the middle of a working rehearsal, but are welcome to leave at the break or stay for the entire rehearsal, which ends at 12:30PM at the latest.
