Details

Open Rehearsals provide a wonderful insight into how professional musicians work together with a conductor to prepare a concert program. Students have the chance to observe a rehearsal, meet MSO musicians and ask questions about their profession. In 2015, we have handpicked a series of rehearsals that will be available for school group bookings. Students attending these programs will also receive a copy of the relevant concert program, with notes on the music and artists.
