Open Rehearsals

Open rehearsals offer middle, high school and college-age students an opportunity to observe The Florida Orchestra’s preparations for upcoming concerts and gain exposure to live, classical music. This behind-the-scenes look sheds light on rehearsal techniques, the art of problem-solving, and the beauty of music-making. Students will also have the opportunity to speak with the conductor, guest artist, or Florida Orchestra musicians in a Q&A format during the break or after the rehearsal. Registration is required.

  • Teachers may bring students to the full rehearsal (2 ½ hours) or one half of the rehearsal (1 – 1 ¼ hours). Because rehearsal timings vary, confirmation with approximate times will be sent the week of the rehearsal.
  • Open rehearsals are free but reservations are required and will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are limited.
  • Please plan to bring a sufficient number of chaperones to help reinforce attentive, good behavior during the rehearsal.
  • Please note that open rehearsal dates and repertoire are subject to change. Any changes will be communicated as soon as possible.
