Join us for an Open Rehearsal!
It takes a tremendous amount of work to coordinate 65 musicians and their instruments as they play together. Open Rehearsals are your chance to see what it takes to make the music sound great!
Every member of the Calgary Civic Symphony practices diligently on their own time, but it’s at rehearsal where we all come together. And it’s at rehearsal where we rely on our Conductor, Rolf Bertsch, to lead us as we shape and polish the music. Rolf carefully listens as we rehearse and provides in-the-moment instructions.
Whether he’s adjusting the tempo or telling the brass to play just a little softer, it’s dozens of small changes that bring everything together and make the music sound amazing!
During a performance, you don’t usually get to see the conductor make these adjustments. But during an Open Rehearsal, you’ll get to experience it all. Open Rehearsals are your chance to see the orchestra up close and witness the process of refining the music.
Sound like something you’d like to experience?
We offer a few Open Rehearsals each season, but spaces are limited. Sign up for our newsletter to be among the first to find out about our next opportunity.
