BEAVER CREEK, Colorado – Have you ever wondered what happens at a music rehearsal?

Look behind the scenes at Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival chamber music rehearsals Tuesday and July 27.

“Caution! Musicians at Work: Open Rehearsal,” launches today at the Vilar Performing Arts Center. Guest are invited to attend the rehearsal, which is from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and will have an opportunity to ask Bravo! Artistic Director Eugenia Zukerman and Associate Director Lynne Mazza questions about the rehearsal process.

“The rehearsal process is quite an intricate one,” Zukerman said. “Being witness to all the work that goes on behind the music will enrich the concertgoer’s experience at the actual performance, and add a layer of understanding that other audience members may not have.”

Music from Tuesday’s Captivating Classics concert, which includes works by Mozart, Chopin and Dvorak, with pianist Inon Barnatan and members of the Daedalus String Quartet, will be rehearsed today. Refreshments will be served and tickets are not required.

Tickets for Tuesday’s 6 p.m. concert, also at the Vilar Performing Arts Center, cost $27 and are available for purchase during rehearsal, by calling 877-812-5700 or at

The second “Caution! Musicians at Work” takes place July 27, from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Vail Mountain School. Works from the July 27 evening concert will be rehearsed.

“I am positive that anyone who comes to the open rehearsals and has not already purchased Captivating Classics tickets will be absolutely inspired to do so after hearing the magic made in the rehearsal process,” says Zukerman.

Celebrating 23 seasons June 25 through Aug. 3, the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival presents the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, and the Captivating Classics series. For a festival lineup and to purchase tickets, visit or call 970-827-5700.
