Open Dress Rehearsals

Grades 7 - 12

Catch a sneak peek of the ESO at work in our Open Dress Rehearsals! Students gain an inside view of the rehearsal process through a live blog feed broadcast in the hall and through a Q&A with composers, conductors, or other special guests. Students will be engaged in directed listening and gain an introduction to the historical context of great contemporary and classical symphonic works. This is the ultimate experience for both orchestral newbies and die-hard musicians!

Program length: Approximately 1.5 – 2.5 hours
We are currently planning our concert season to align with school re-entry and health guidelines. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
