Open Rehearsals for Students

 

Experience The Philadelphia Orchestra like never before!


For High School and College Students

Don’t miss the opportunity to go behind the scenes and watch The Philadelphia Orchestra at work in rehearsal. Students observe first-hand the artistic collaboration between world-class musicians and conductors. Open Rehearsals begin promptly at 10:30 AM, end at 1:00 PM, and include a 20-minute break. If necessary, groups may leave during this intermission, which occurs approximately one hour into the rehearsal.

Open Rehearsals for Students are supported by the Annenberg Foundation.

Pre-Rehearsal Conversation

Enrich this educational experience by attending a Pre-Rehearsal Conversation with one of the artists involved in the rehearsal. These half-hour talks begin at 9:45 AM and provide valuable insight and a personal connection to the music. Held in the Kimmel Center’s Rendell Room, the Pre-Rehearsal Conversation is limited to 150 participants.

2017-18 Philadelphia Orchestra Open Rehearsals for Students

Verizon Hall at The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts

Check back soon for dates and registration for the 2017-18 season.

Policies

School groups will be limited to reservations at only one Open Rehearsal per season. Any requests for reservations at additional rehearsals should be communicated to HEAR@philorch.org and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

If your group cannot make its scheduled rehearsal, please contact the Orchestra at HEAR@philorch.org as soon as possible, so that your seats can be released to groups on the waiting list. Failure to notify the Orchestra of your cancellation prior to the open rehearsal may jeopardize your schools’ ability to attend open rehearsals in the following season.

Resources

Program notes may be found online at www.philorch.org, typically one week prior to the start of the concert series. Use these resources in the classroom to supplement music history, literacy, and general curriculum materials.
