Membership: Get Closer to the Music

Open Rehearsals are a fantastic way to see the Orchestra at work as they make the final touches to the music before the concert. If you’re a CBSO member, you’re invited!

"It's such a privilege to watch and listen to the orchestra in rehearsal. I love being able to observe the interactions between the conductor, leader, orchestra and soloist. Observing a rehearsal adds another dimension to the concert performance and furthers my huge admiration for the wonderful CBSO" – Pam, Gold Patron

Once a month, we open Symphony Hall’s doors to all our members so they can listen in on their own exclusive, behind-the-scenes concert. With a whole new season of music coming up soon and membership starting from as little as £40* per year, now is a great time to join and get closer to the music

"I have found that a favourite benefit of CBSO membership is the ability to attend the 2-3 hour open rehearsals before concerts. It helps me not only to better understand the works, but also to appreciate what the conductor and musicians want to achieve and this makes the final performance even more enjoyable."  - Tim, Overture Circle Member
