On Thursday 7 November EMG Symphony Orchestra will once more be opening the rehearsal room doors, offering the chance to go "behind the scenes" and see how a large adult symphony orchestra prepares for a concert.

This will provide an opportunity not only to meet the players but also to sit amongst the orchestra during the rehearsal and experience the music from the players' perspective as the orchestra rehearses for its next concert,
