FREE Open Rehearsal for Children

Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra

This event is the culmination of the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra’s Education Programme of interactive workshops run by our musicians in local schools in conjunction with SoundCity.

PLEASE NOTE: this event was fully booked but as of Friday 16 March more seats have been released and the event is again bookable via Brighton Dome Ticket Office.

At the Open Rehearsal the children will be introduced to the musicians of the orchestra and their instruments, and will hear some of the pieces that will be played at that afternoon’s concert, including the finale of Saint-Saëns’ musical mystery tour of the animal kingdom The Carnival of the Animals with piano duo Worbey & Farrell, a waltz from Delibes’ comic ballet Coppélia and an exciting brass fanfare by Malcolm Arnold.
