Fields Trips to an Open Rehearsal:
Middle and High School
What is it?
At an Open Rehearsal, your students can witness the orchestra in action at the Orpheum Theater as we prepare for our upcoming Orpheum Session performance. The conductor, guest artists, or musicians will often speak with the audience about the concert preparation and provide fun facts about the orchestra, piece, and composer.
Who can participate?
Middle and high school students.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for students, and $3 for Title I school students. 1 complimentary adult ticket is provided per 10 students.
When and Where?
Open Rehearsals are scheduled from 10:00am-12:30pm at the Orpheum Theater. There is a small break, and attendees do not have to stay for the full rehearsal. The rehearsal order is set by the conductor and is subject to change. Check out the full list of upcoming Open Rehearsals below, or download our app.
While this is a relaxed and engaging atmosphere, we do ask attendees to keep in mind that it is still a rehearsal that requires attendees to silence their mobile devices. Recording the orchestra during rehearsal is strictly prohibited.
