Open Rehearsals

How are the rehearsals of a professional big band like? What kind of final touch-ups are made to the programme before the premiere?

Come and hear for yourself at UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra´s rehearsal hall at Helsinki’s Cable Factory. In UMO Helsinki´s open rehearsals you will witness how the programme gets crystallised and the orchestra’s sound unified. As the rehearsals are kept as authentic as possible, certain parts and passages may be honed a number of times. A conductor will also be present at the rehearsals, directing the orchestra toward the desired sound.

Open rehearsals are organised approximately eight times a year and they are free and open for all. Follow UMO Helsinki´s Facebook events and official website concert calendar and join us!

You can also inquire about special sessions for groups (of 40-70 persons), such as school classes.
