Pay What You Can!
Open Rehearsals take place in an informal setting that is welcoming to all on the Saturday of our Masterworks and Legacy Hall series concerts. The rehearsals are conducted with the performance hall doors open and the house lights on to create a sensory-friendly environment. It is perfect for families with small children to gain exposure to the art form. It is also great for those who may not be able to sit long, are uncomfortable in the dark, unable to attend at night, cannot afford the evening ticket prices and many other barriers that prevent community members from attending concerts and experiencing the performance of a live orchestra. The CSO breaks the financial barrier by encouraging attendees to “pay what they want.” By allowing them to set the price, the Open Rehearsals eliminate hesitation and expose people who have not had the capabilities to partake in the music that is being created here in Columbus. Donations collected from Open Rehearsals go towards furthering our educational programming.
Open Rehearsals begin at 12:30 pm and last the duration of a rehearsal (no later than 3:30 pm). For more information call Marketing Director, Kristen Hudson at (706) 256-3645.
