MR.1 Understand the interacting elements to respond to music and music performances. Open Rehearsals are a great way for students to observe all of the interacting elements that go into a symphony performance and learn how to respond to classical music performances. This includes watching how the players respond to the conductor’s gestures, observing the differences in sound and personnel/instrumentation of music of different eras, and being able to form opinions and analysis of the compositions and performances experienced.
