EMG Symphony Orchestra Open Rehearsal
Thursday 1st March 2018, 7.30pm
St Peter's School, Quarry Lane, Exeter, EX2 5AP
Under-16s to be accompanied by an adult

On Thursday 1st March, EMG Symphony Orchestra and Musical Director Leo Geyer invite you to glimpse "behind the scenes" and get a sneak preview of the orchestra’s spring concert.  This free event provides an opportunity to meet the players and sit in different parts of the room, enabling you to experience a rehearsal from the players' perspective!  EMG’s open rehearsals provide an accessible, friendly introduction to classical music, as well as a chance to see how the orchestra prepares for a public performance.

EMG Symphony Orchestra’s next concert celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM), and for the Open Rehearsal we will focus on Mussorgsky's “Pictures at an Exhibition”, inspired by a visit to an art gallery, and extracts from Saint-Saens “Carnival of the Animals”, again reflecting the RAMM collection.

The open rehearsal will take place at 7.30pm on Thursday 1st March at St Peter's School, Quarry Lane, Exeter, EX2 5AP.  It is a free event, but all under-16s must be accompanied by an adult.  For further information about EMG Symphony Orchestra, this event and tickets for our spring concert, please visit, visit our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter.
