EMG Symphony Orchestra
The EMG Symphony Orchestra is the largest of its type in the South West of England, drawing support and audiences from a wide area.
EMGSO has an ongoing programme of concerts in aid of good causes and we invite you to participate in our love of great live classical music.
Thursday 6 June, 7.30pm, St Peter's School, Exeter
On Thursday 6 June EMG Symphony Orchestra is inviting you to go "behind the scenes" and see how a large amateur symphony orchestra prepares for a concert. This free event will provide an opportunity to meet the players and see how the orchestra approaches some of the challenges of pieces such as Copland's El Salon Mexico, Piazzolla's Tangazo and de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain.
This event is particularly aimed at children and young people who are learning an orchestral instrument, but anyone who would like to learn more about classical music is welcome to attend. The rehearsal will include a rhythm workshop which all attendees are invited to take part in. Please note, aside from the rhythm workshop, this open rehearsal is a listening only event, as we are unable to accommodate additional players at present.
The open rehearsal will take place at 7.30pm on Thursday 6 June at St Peter's School, Quarry Lane, Exeter, EX2 5AP. The orchestra asks that all under-16s are accompanied by an adult. Squash will be available free of charge during the break in the rehearsal. If you would prefer tea or coffee, please bring a mug with you and put it on the table in the relevant place at the start of the rehearsal.
