High school music teachers are invited to bring their students to a morning rehearsal at Roy Thomson Hall to observe the Orchestra's preparations before a concert.

  • This is a unique learning opportunity for students to listen to and learn from professional musicians.
  • Students will be seated in the choir loft directly above the musicians (pending availability) in order to derive the maximum benefit from this experience.
  • Meet a TSO musician during the rehearsal break for a Q&A session about the music, rehearsal, technique, 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). If space is still available in select rehearsals, we will re-open bookings in January 2020, and at that time, will accept bookings for students in grades 7 & 8 and high schools wishing to book a second rehearsal.

If you are interested in bringing grades 7 & 8 or booking a second rehearsal, please fill out the online booking form to be added to our January 2020 wait list. Should we still have space available come January 2020, we will contact you at that time to book one of the remaining open rehearsal spots.

Please check out our Open Rehearsal FAQ for more information.
