Band and Orchestra Classes – Grades 6–12
The Seattle Symphony Open Rehearsals offer students and teachers a rare behind the scenes look at how a professional orchestra prepares for a concert. The season Associate Conductor Pablo Rus Broseta and the Seattle Symphony Baroque series conductor Dmitry Sinkovsky will guide students through an interactive Seattle Symphony rehearsal. During this rehearsal, students will investigate the choices that composers, conductors and individual musicians make to bring the notes on the page to life. Students have the opportunity to ask the orchestra questions and learn basic conducting principles. These concerts are best suited for classes with a working knowledge of musical terminology and basic performance experience.
