The Columbia Orchestra’s First-Ever OPEN REHEARSAL!
Have you ever wondered what happens in an orchestra rehearsal? What do the musicians discuss? How do they get 85 people playing together in a single interpretation?
Join Jason Love and the Columbia Orchestra May 7, 2012 at 7:30 at The Gathering Place for the orchestra’s first open rehearsal. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes peek at the creative, collaborative process of putting a concert together. You'll have new insight into the music you’ll hear on our June 2 concert including Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol, and other great works.
Enjoy wine and cheese in a relaxed setting while watching Maestro Love’s interpretation unfold with our talented musicians. This is not just a run-through just before the concert – this is a real working rehearsal in the middle of the process of putting the concert together, mistakes and all!
The rehearsal starts at 7:30 and you can mingle with orchestra musicians at their break at about 8:30. The entire rehearsal lasts 7:30-10:00; you can come and go as you like.
You can attend without RSVP-ing, but if you know that you will attend, let us know through this facebook link so we can be sure to have enough refreshments and chairs If you use Facebook and haven't yet "liked" us, please do! (You can also send us an RSVP by email if you're not on Facebook.)
