First Friday Club (CPO): The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra hold Open Rehearsals for seniors on a Friday morning, usually monthly (schedule varies). As it is a working rehearsal, the conductor may stop the orchestra at any point, to correct or go over a passage again. These rehearsals are to be treated as a concert requiring appropriate audience etiquette. The cost is $15 per person (cash). The First Friday Club is setting up a group booking to attend these rehearsals. It is mandatory for me to register our names one week before the rehearsal, and our group must have a minimum of four people attending. The easiest way to get to the Jack Singer Concert Hall is by C-train. You pay when you arrive, and our group could meet in the foyer around 9:45 am The following dates are the next scheduled open rehearsals: March 6 10 am BEETOVEN 3: HEROIC; April 3 10 am RUSH HOUR: BEST OF MOZART; and May 29 10 am BEETHOVEN 4: BOLD. If you are interested in attending any one, or all, of these open rehearsal concerts, please let me know as soon as possible. I will send out a reminder 10 days before the scheduled rehearsal to those who have expressed an interest in attending. Contact Marilyn Shaw 403-252-9238 or mashawca[at]yahoo[dot]ca
