Open Rehearsals

Join us!Trumpets - Photo Credit: Jessica Griffin

Friends’ Circle members and above will have behind-the-scenes access to a working session of the Orchestra with esteemed guest artists and conductors.

Open Rehearsal tickets are required for attendance and are available by logging in to My Account. Open Rehearsal tickets expire one year from the date of your gift. Seating is general admission on the Orchestra level and select areas of Tier 1. These are working rehearsals and as a courtesy to the musicians, seating may not be allowed in the rows closest to the stage. Children under the age of eight will not be admitted. When approved by the conductor, seating in the Conductor’s Circle is available to Maestro’s Circle members who make their reservation by calling 215.893.3151.

Please see below for exact times of each rehearsal. Out of respect for the conductor and musicians, rehearsals will begin promptly on-time.
