The Open Rehearsal Program is an American Jazz Museum Education Department offering that gives community musical organizations and performing arts organizations the opportunity to perform rehearsals and concerts in a public space before an audience.
An Open Rehearsal is a fascinating opportunity to watch the musical ensembles at work, and see how a piece of music is shaped and polished for public performances by the ensemble leader and the musicians. Bring a lunch, get a cold drink from the Swing Shop and listen to the music. Tour the museums after the Open Rehearsal.
