The QCSO presents a unique and very successful program at the orchestra's Friday night rehearsal when we invite students to go "inside the scene." Students and one accompanying adult attend the QCSO Friday night rehearsal to see how the conductor and musicians interact and put together the musical pieces that lead to the rehearsal.  Before the rehearsal or at the rehearsal break, Maestro Mark Russell Smith, the guest conductors, soloists and/or orchestra musicians will meet the you to give an introduction to or explanation of what you're about to see and hear or what you just experienced.

This program is open to any secondary or elementary student.  All students must be accompanied by a supervising adult.  To attend, please complete the online form by noon on the day of the rehearsal.  You will need to be checked in at the door.
