Giveaway: Behind the Scenes – DSO Open Rehearsal

by Anne Bothwell 5 Oct 2010 11:07 AM

UPDATE: WE have not one, but two, winners! Congrats to Erin and Daniel and thanks so much to the DSO Guild for making two pairs of tickets available.

Ever wonder how a conductor prepares an orchestra to perform a large-scale work?  Here’s an opportunity to find out. Go behind the scenes when you watch Jaap van Zweden rehearsing the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for a performance of the Brahms German Requiem. It happens next Wednesday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m.

“Open” rehearsal really isn’t: the general public is not invited and special vouchers are required. However, thanks to the DSO Guild, Art&Seek can hook you up.  We’ll draw a name from those who e-mail me at [email protected] the answer to this trivia question:

Q. What noted rock & roll keyboardist created a short piece based on part of a Brahms symphony, and what is the name of the work?

Email me at [email protected] with Giveaway in the subject line and your answer. Good luck!
