Open Rehearsals


Family Friendly Fridays!
Mandeville Auditorium, UCSD

Free Dress Rehearsals* 7:00 PM
Join us for a free, open dress rehearsal the Friday before most concert weekends. An excellent introduction to the concert experience for school-aged children, the whole family will enjoy watching orchestra and chorus rehearse. Teachers are encouraged to bring student groups too. Dress rehearsals last up to three hours with frequent breaks, during which audience members can come and go. You and your family will enjoy…

  • Casual campus setting
  • Ability to stay for part or all of the rehearsal
  • Easy first-time concert experience for young audiences*

*Not recommended for children under 5 years of age.
