Each season, The Florida Orchestra performs school-day concerts for thousands of elementary-aged students.
Open rehearsals offer middle, high school and college-age students an opportunity to observe The Florida Orchestra’s preparations for upcoming concerts and gain exposure to live, classical music. This behind-the-scenes look sheds light on rehearsal techniques, the art of problem-solving, and the beauty of music-making. Students will also have the opportunity to speak with the conductor, guest artist, or Florida Orchestra musicians in a Q&A format during the break or after the rehearsal. Space for this program is limited, and registration is required.
The Florida Orchestra has set aside a limited number of free tickets for Ruth Eckerd Hall Coffee Concerts for public, private, and homeschooled students in grades 6 through 12. Registration is required, and tickets may be picked up at will call. Pre- Concert Conversations with TFO musicians begin an hour before the performance.
