Ever wonder how professional musicians prepare for a concert? What does a Chamber Music Society rehearsal look and feel like? We invite you and your students to attend a real working rehearsal as our artists get ready for one of our concerts. Each rehearsal lasts approximately one hour and is preceded by a 30-minute introduction to familiarize students with the repertoire they are about to hear. At these unique events students will also have the opportunity to ask questions and to interact informally with our artists.
All rehearsals take place in our Rose Studio, 165 W. 65th Street at Amsterdam Avenue, 10th floor
Each event takes place from 10:00am-11:30am, which includes the pre-rehearsal discussion, rehearsal, and Q&A session.
