When you make a membership gift ($100 or more) to The Philadelphia Orchestra, you receive member benefits designed to deepen your personal Orchestra experience.
If you have questions about these events, or would like to RSVP, contact the Annual Fund office at 215.893.3151 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
ne of our most popular member benefits is the Open Rehearsal series. Members are invited to a final working rehearsal, typically on Thursday mornings of the concert program’s opening night. The Orchestra offers five (5) Open Rehearsals for members per season, and schedules are subject to change.
Tickets are distributed as follows: $100 members are eligible for two (2) tickets; $250 members are eligible for four (4) tickets; $500–$2,499 members are eligible for eight (8) tickets.
Orchestra-level, general admission tickets are required for admittance into the concert hall and are available by logging in to My Account or by contacting our office. Open Rehearsal tickets are date specific, and exchanges can be made by contacting our office.
Members at the $2,500 level and above are eligible to attend all Open Rehearsals without tickets and have access to Tier 1 and Conductor’s Circle seating as well as an intermission reception with Orchestra musicians. Donors at this level should contact the Annual Fund office to make their Open Rehearsal reservation.
Open Rehearsals are working rehearsals. As a courtesy to the musicians, seating may not be allowed in the rows closest to the stage. Children under the age of eight (8) will not be admitted. Rehearsals begin promptly at the start time. Repertoire and artists are subject to change.
