This unique rehearsal format-performance features a rare glimpse of the Orchestra’s behind-the-scenes efforts. Students will experience working rehearsals--as well as the polished performances that are the result.

Students will seee both approaches first with Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 2, and then, after a break, with Kodály’s Dances of Galanta. Wrapping up this special program will be a 30-minute “dig deeper” session in which students ask questions of and initiate discussions with the musicians themselves.

Students are invited to bring scores and follow along as the Orchestra plays!
