For Musicians

Rehearsal Schedules

Rehearsals are always free and open to the public, unless noted otherwise. Use the tabs below to explore the rehearsal schedule for each day. Please note that copious schedule changes are inevitable! During the Festival, check back each morning to be sure you have the most updated schedule for the day. (Schedule changes will appear in purple and underlined.)

Families with children of any age are welcome at rehearsals (we do ask that children be at least five years old to attend concerts).
