Open Rehearsals

Open Rehearsals

Watch, listen and learn as the TSO rehearses for a Master or Matinee Series concert. Observe a conductor in action and take note of how the rehearsal process works. Listen to the music as it is tweaked, transformed and polished to perfection.

TSO Big Rehearsal

TSO Big Rehearsal

Each year the TSO invites members of the Tasmanian Youth Orchestra to join them onstage for an intense day of side-by-side rehearsing. Aspiring student musicians are mentored by members of the TSO as they prepare a program of orchestral masterworks under the baton of British conductor, Andrew Gourlay.

Sheng-Yuan is 12 years old and will be taking part in TSO Big Rehearsal this year, performing the 1st movement of  Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 2 . Sheng studies with Shan Deng.
