The San Antonio Symphony invites school groups of middle, high school and college age to attend free-admission “Open Rehearsals” of the San Antonio Symphony. For the first time during 2014-15 season, Open Rehearsals will take place in the new H-E-B Performance Hall. Students will observe how a professional ensemble rehearses while being exposed to masterpieces of classical music. Students are also given the unique opportunity to interact with Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing or a guest artist.  Click here for more about Open Rehearsals for Students.  


Where can I find additional information about this event? 

Please visit http://www.sasymphony.org/category/educational-programs/open-rehearsals-for-students/.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Open Rehearsal ushers will not be checking ID, but reservation in advance is required.  Group or individual not appearing on the reservation list on rehearsal day will not be admitted to the auditorium. Only adults who are accompanying students will be admitted to Open Rehearsals, such as in the case of teachers, parents and chaperones.  Attendance of children below middle school age is discouraged. Every attendee, regardless of age, must be included in your ticket count. 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?  

If arriving by bus, busses should turn onto Auditorium Circle from 4TH Street and unload directly in front of the main doors on the Performing Arts Plaza.  Busses will need to park elsewhere downtown as there is no bus parking at the Center.  A City Tour or School Bus Parking Map is available for download here: http://visitsanantonio.com/VisitSanAntonio/media/vsa-media/maps/SA_MC_Parking.pdf

If arriving by car, it will be necessary to park in a metered space or pay-to-park lot or garage.  The Enter Lot on the corner of St. Mary’s and Lexington is the closest lot for paid parking.  Additional parking information can be found at http://downtownsanantonio.org/park.  


What can/can't I bring to the event?

Please DO bring your ears, eyes, enthusiasm, curiosity and good concert etiquette.
