Open Rehearsals & Student Group Rates

Working with young musicians or a fine arts class and want to have a behind the scenes experience? Why not create your own visit? Spend the day at the Clay Center by attending a WVSO open rehearsal or concert and going to other activities on-site (based on availability).

WVSO open rehearsals serve as a wonderful learning laboratory where conductors, guest artists and the orchestra do most of their work to prepare for a concert.

Note that rehearsals are on specific dates determined by the overall concert schedule. Be sure to check with us about available dates before you build your field trip.
