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 at The Gathering Place for an open rehearsal for each classical concert. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes peek at the creative, collaborative process of putting a concert together. Imagine the new insight into the music you'll have after seeing the process of putting it together!
- September 24, 2012 - Bernstein and Beethoven
- November 12, 2012 - Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff
- January 14, 2013 - Barber and Sibelius
- May 6, 2013 - Wagner and Stravinsky
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!
You don't have to RSVP at our Facebook event page, but if you do, we'll know a little better how many of you to expect ... and you can help us spread the word there, too!
Each rehearsal starts at 7:30 pm 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.
These are fun, interesting special events even if you don't know anything about music! We hope you’ll join us.
