Culture Days - TSO Open Rehearsal

Join the Toronto Symphony Orchestra for a behind-the-scenes look at how the Orchestra prepares for a concert. You're invited to a special Culture Days Open Rehearsal on Saturday, Sept 28 at 10am led by Music Director, Peter Oundjian. The Orchestra is joined by violinist Ray Chen as they prepare Mendelssohn’s dramatic and alluring Violin Concerto. Ray is a compelling violinist making his debut with the TSO. Culture Days participants will have a special opportunity to sit in the choir loft, allowing for an up close look at the rehearsal process.  Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear an up-and-coming soloist rehearse for his first public performance with the TSO.

Access Roy Thomson Hall through the backstage entrance off Wellington Street West at Simcoe Street. We will be there at 09:30.

TFCM is a not-for-profit group, and unlike most other Meet-Up groups, we do not  charge membership fees. In order to help cover some of  the costs of running the group, we are now asking for participating members to pay a nominal fee of $2.00 for each free event they attend.

Thank you for supporting TFCM.

    On behalf of musicians everywhere, I would like to remind members once again that posting of live music rehearsals on the internet is strictly prohibited. TFCM does not endorse this practice.

    Hello, I have to points to make. 1.) There have been a few inquiries about attending this event tomorrow. Because it is a city wide event, I am only allowed to bring a limited amount of 10 members. Please make sure you attend, or make room for others. And please do not just 'show up', because if you are not on the list, you may be turned away. 2). Payment. I am sorry some of you do not agree with the method of payment. Please be assured that any money collected goes directly into a fund that helps to cover the costs of running the group. This is the way your team of TFCM organizers agreed to handle such events. Thank you for your patience.

    Hi Mary,
    I don't think is questioning the purpose of the funds as everyone has indicated they are willing to pay you at the venue. And with you being the lead organiser, I certainly assume that paying you in person will mean that the funds are directed appropriately. PayPal may be safe but there is zero customer service if there is a problem - and frankly, it's a lot of typing for $2.00! (I speak as a former meetup organiser who both had and heard about issues.)
    Clearly there are a lot of people who want to participate and this seems to be a very minor issue in the scheme of things. I would like to attend but I do not use PayPal. Let me know whether I can pay you in person. If not, I will not be attending.
    Thanks, Susan

    Hi Vanessa and Robert, the fees are not for the event host, they are for the site organizer, to help cover membership fees and web domain costs. This is why we require payment by Paypal, to ensure the funds are directed to the right place. We hope to see you at the event, Cheers!
