Open Rehearsals

Years 6 - 12

Open Rehearsals provide a unique opportunity to sit in rehearsal and observe the West Australian Symphony Orchestra and their conductor in work mode as they place the finishing touches on a concert program. 

A pre-rehearsal talk will give students an insight into the works being rehearsed, the rehearsal process and the varied behind-the-scenes roles across the Orchestra in preparing the performance.
