Friends’ Circle members and above will have behind-the-scenes access to a working session of the Orchestra with esteemed guest artists and conductors.

Open Rehearsal tickets are required for attendance and are available by logging in to My Account. Open Rehearsal tickets are date specific, please select the rehearsal you plan on attending; you can exchange tickets if needed. Seating is general admission on the Orchestra level. These are working rehearsals and as a courtesy to the musicians, seating may not be allowed in the rows closest to the stage. Children under the age of eight will not be admitted.

When approved by the conductor, seating in Tier 1 and the Conductor’s Circle is available to Maestro’s Circle members.

Please see below for exact times of each rehearsal. Out of respect for the conductor and musicians, rehearsals will begin promptly; programs and artists are subject to change.

Please contact memberevents@philorch.org or 215.893.3151 with any questions or concerns.
