Curb Open Dress Rehearsals

PLEASE NOTE: Registration for 2017/18 Young People's Concerts will open in mid-August. Check this page for updates. 

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.
Please note: This program is FREE for students 10 and older and $10 for chaperones and teachers. Groups with students under the age of 10 will be turned away from our Curb Open Dress Rehearsals. College students must attend as a class or group—individual students interested in attending a classical concert can purchase $10 tickets through Soundcheck.

Lifelong Listener groups should call 615.687.6398 to make their reservations – tickets are still free of charge for senior groups participating in our Lifelong Listeners program.

The dates listed below are tentative. Due to the possibility of changes in the orchestra's rehearsal schedule, registration will only be available for the next two Open Dress Rehearsals on a rolling schedule throughout the season.
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.
