OPEN DRESS REHEARSALS
INVITING THE COMMUNITY IN
The MSO is one of the few orchestras in the nation that allows the public to attend its dress rehearsals free of charge. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to experience a working symphony in action. And be sure to bring the young musicians in your life to see what happens behind the scenes.
2013-2014 OPEN DRESS REHEARSALS
Reservations are available here beginning one month before each event. Space is limited, and we usually fill up.

THANK YOU MSO
"Thank you for the opportunity to see the symphony's practice last night [for the Lynn Harrell concert]. It's really nice to be able to expose my 3 boys to an orchestra without the pressure that a formal evening would bring... They truthfully enjoyed it, too. They even knew the first piece from a Tom and Jerry cartoon! I want my kids to have an appreciation for classical music, so I'm starting them young." - MSO Patron
OPEN DRESS REHEARSAL ETIQUETTE
Please treat the rehearsal as a concert: you should arrive in Overture Hall by 6:50 PM so that you can be seated before the rehearsal begins. Please also turn off cell phones, remain silent and leave quietly if you need to before the end. The use of cameras or recording devices of any kind is prohibited. The rehearsal will last two to three hours with a 15 minute break in the middle. Please remove children quickly if they become disruptive. We thank you for making this public service a source of joy for all! Open Dress Rehearsals take place in Overture Hall, 201 State St. Schedules, artists and programs are subject to change.
