Open Rehearsals

Open Rehearsals give families and students an opportunity to enjoy the orchestra in a relaxed environment, while experiencing an educational, behind-the-curtain view on how a symphony prepares for a professional concert!

Guests will hear from the conductor, watch our musicians up close, and can attend at their own speed! We encourage student groups and families to join us and take advantage of this unique event. During our season Friday night rehearsals begin at 7PM and the orchestra will begin rehearsing pieces they are playing for the upcoming concert. Guests are welcomed to stay for as long as they like. While Open Rehearsals are more relaxed than a formal orchestra performance, we do ask that all guests maintain concert manners and respect our musicians and conductor.

Open rehearsal are free and open to the public. While there are no tickets, we appreciate knowing that you plan to attend! We do serve snacks on a first come first serve basis, so if interested please email info@reillyartscenter.com and let us know you’ll be joining us.

6:30 PM – Lobby opens for snacks
7:00 PM – Symphony rehearsal begins in the auditorium
8:30 PM – Symphony rehearsal ends

Symphony for Schools

Each school year more than 10,000 students are visited through our Symphony for Schools program.

The Symphony for Schools program takes professional musicians into Marion County classrooms for a 30-minute fun and educational presentation. Our musicians demonstrate orchestral instruments, perform sections of pieces from Mozart to Moana, and get the students involved! The goal of the presentation is to give students an insight into the fun and empowering feelings that music and playing a musical instrument can bring. Are you interested in bringing Symphony for Schools to your school? Contact Margaret@reillyartscenter.com.
