As the community of conductors, musicians, and composers sculpt pieces for performances, you have the chance to truly watch the music come to life. You’re invited to discover what increasing numbers of Festival fans have already realized—Open Rehearsals are a dynamic precursor to the concerts themselves. In 2013 the Festival will again offer free talks by lecturerers who bring their love and knowledge of the music to informal sessions preceding Open Rehearsals.
