Community Engagement

Rehearsal Observations

Rehearsal Observations offer the unique opportunity of viewing the inner workings of a symphony orchestra for grades 5 and up. During the visits, students and community groups will witness a working rehearsal with internationally renowned conductors and soloists. The observation requires that groups remain in the performance hall for approximately 75 minutes. Prior to the rehearsal, groups will meet with Fellows of the New World Symphony to learn more about works to be rehearsed and answer questions relating to their specific orchestral instrument. 

Deadline for Reservation: Reservation forms must be received at least one month in advance of desired Rehearsal Observation date. September reservations must be received at least two weeks in advance.
