Open Rehearsal

The Lesher Center for the Arts

All the shaping and finessing that goes into the performances you see on stage happens during rehearsals. Go behind the scenes as Artistic and Music Director Donato Cabrera works with the musicians in preparation for HANDEL—RIVERS OF INSPIRATION. You’ll listen alongside Resident Composer Viet Cuong, who will also be in the hall to hear his newest commission take shape.

This event is for California Symphony Donors at the $250+ annual giving level.  Capacity is limited and guests are encouraged to reply early. RSVP to the office at or 925.280.2490 by Friday, November 3 to secure your spot.

MASKS OPTIONAL; NO COVID TESTING: In an update from previous directions, you will NOT be required to test or show proof of a negative COVID test, and masking is optional.
