Open Rehearsals & Artists in Conversation

The festival aims to venture beyond traditional classical music boundaries, bridging the gap between audiences and performers. One of the ways we do this is by simply talking more and inviting audiences into the players’ creative world. Open rehearsals and pre-concert events ‘artists in conversation’ will create the space to explore the composers’ fascinating lives and give insights into the performers’ working environment.
