NAC Orchestra Open Rehearsals

Student Open Rehearsals – a unique opportunity to hear the National Arts Centre Orchestra at work in rehearsal with some of the world’s finest conductors and soloists, and to meet some of the musicians in person.

Open Rehearsals are generally held on Wednesday or Thursday mornings. During the rehearsals, the Orchestra will be preparing for the concerts taking place that same week. Therefore, the students might hear only one or two of the pieces listed on the program. Please remember that the musicians are hard at work during these rehearsals, and noise or talking can disturb their concentration. 

For further preparation, we encourage you to visit nac-cna.ca/en/orchestra/musicians where your students can learn more about the musicians behind the instruments.

*Students might hear only one or two of the pieces listed on the program.
