High school and college students are invited to experience the Fort Worth Symphony in a unique way this season. Join us for open dress rehearsals at Bass Performance Hall at no cost.

Attending students will observe a complete rehearsal from beginning to end. All who attend should remain for the entire two and a half hour rehearsal (there is a 20-minute break approx. halfway through). In selecting students, please keep the following in mind:

  • The number of students to be admitted is limited. Reservations are required and will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • If you plan to attend more than one open dress rehearsal, please submit a separate reservation form for each concert date.
  • All students who attend should be in grade 9 or up and have a serious interest in the rehearsal and/or appreciation of music.
  • One chaperone per 10 students is required to help reinforce good behavior during the rehearsal.
