Select rehearsals are open to High School and College age musicians as a learning experience. Because this is valuable working time for the conductor and the orchestra, there are restrictions and policies that are enforced. Information about availability and reservations is available by contacting the Philharmonic Education Coordinator.
No children under 10 years of age are permitted.
Reservations are required. There will be no admittance without advance registration.
Reservations must be made by noon the Friday of rehearsal.
Admission is restricted to 50 people. Organized school groups may qualify for an exception.
Registered attendees must enter through the North or South backstage doors at the Civic Center Music Hall in downtown OKC. Proceed to the South backstage doors and down the black and white tiled ramp. The Philharmonic Education Coordinator will meet you here to check-in.
Check-in will begin 30 minutes before rehearsal begins.
No admittance after rehearsal begins -- no exceptions.
Attendees will remain seated in the designated area of the hall until break and must leave the theater using the same door through which they entered.
Rehearsal attendees are not allowed in the backstage area of the stage house or the restrooms backstage. The lobby restrooms are available for rehearsal attendees.
No cell phone usage allowed.
