Open Rehearsals—Morning with the TSO

Supported by:

Kiwanis Club of Toronto

Morning with the TSO (MTSO) is a unique learning opportunity for music students to see and hear how a professional orchestra prepares for an upcoming performance.

Students are seated in the Choir Loft, directly above the musicians, giving them a chance to watch their favourite section at work and hear the conductor’s remarks. At the rehearsal break, a TSO musician speaks with the students, answering their many questions regarding the music, rehearsal techniques, and even life as a professional musician.

This program is available to high school music classes only and is free of charge. Rehearsals are booked on a first-come, first-served basis (please note: one rehearsal may be booked per school each year).

Please check out our Open Rehearsal FAQ for more information.
