Open Rehearsals

2016-17 Open Rehearsal Schedule with the Utah Symphony

Open rehearsals provide an opportunity for students to observe the rehearsal process and learn more about programmed music and Abravanel Hall. Secondary school teachers can sign up to bring their classes. Elementary teachers may consider particular programs they think may be of interest to their students.

Are you an adult interested in attending a rehearsal? You might consider attending a "Finishing Touches" event. Click here for more information.

Open Rehearsals are scheduled throughout the year to provide a variety of times, repertoire and soloists for those in attendance.
