Rehearsals on Tuesdays August 29 and September 5, 2017, starting at 7:15 p.m, to prepare for the LVPAC Gala,Brilliance at the Bankhead: afternoon rehearsal plus evening concert on Saturday September 9 with LAS accompanying the Indigo Girls. These rehearsals and the concert will be at the Bankhead Theater.
The music room at East Avenue is the usual rehearsal site, but there may be changes if, for example, school activities conflict with orchestra rehearsals.
Each concert season, regular Tuesday evening rehearsals (7:15–9:30) start in September with preparations for a pops concert plus a formal concert and continue until early December, usually with no break in sequence. Then there are no rehearsals until the new year, when rehearsals normally begin on the first Tuesday after January 1. The Tuesday rehearsals continue with few breaks until the final concert of the season, in May or June. After that final concert the orchestra goes on break until fall. Exception: First rehearsal of 2016–17 was on August 30, 2016, to prepare for a special performance with Judy Collins.
There is a dress rehearsal on the Thursday evening prior to each major concert; dress rehearsals and concerts, plus most Tuesday rehearsals during concert weeks, are at the Bankhead Theater of the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center.
