Rehearsal Lab Sessions

Rehearsal labs provide observers an opportunity to watch and listen to well-known conductors working with various types of ensembles in an open rehearsal setting. Attendees engage in a meaningful learning experience by observing rehearsal technicians prepare multiple styles of music. An important goal of these sessions is for audience members to gain insight and develop practical pedagogical skills they can use at home with their own ensembles.*
