General Rehearsal Information


Rehearsals are normally held on Sundays from 5:45pm to 8:30pm, in Greenwall Auditorium in the VAPA Building at Bennington College in North Bennington VT. The constant exception is the dress rehearsal, which is usually held at the same time and location on the Saturday before the performance. There is generally a break during which players can share snacks brought by sections of the orchestra. The assignment of which section brings snacks is listed with the rehearsal dates on this page, and generally alternates between the strings and the wind, brass and percussion sections.

Bennington College may have use for the space which alters our rehearsal time or location. Please note that there are a few time changes for the rehearsals going into the May concert and a location change for the rehearsal on January 28 in the schedule below.
