Open Rehearsals for Students

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 in the H-E-B Performance Hall at the Tobin Center. Students will see how a professional ensemble rehearses and be exposed to masterpieces of our Classics Series repertoire and world-class guest artists. Students also have the unique opportunity to interact with Symphony Music Director, Sebastian Lang-Lessing or a guest artist in a post-rehearsal Q&A session.

A limited number of free tickets is available to attend Open Rehearsals. ALL GROUPS OR ATTENDEES MUST RESERVE IN ADVANCE.

Please note that, however unlikely, Open Rehearsal dates, artists and repertoire are subject to change. Notice will be given to reservation holders and adjustments will be made to this page as soon as possible when changes occur.
