Windham Orchestra to hold open rehearsal at the River Garden


Musicians, music lovers, opera buffs, and other culture aficionados are invited to an open rehearsal of the traditional operatic pairing of Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci, hosted by the Windham Orchestra.

The rehearsal is set for Monday, April 18, at 7 p.m. at the River Garden, 157 Main St., Brattleboro.

The double bill of Cavalleria Rusticana, an opera in one act by Pietro Mascagni to an Italian libretto by Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido Menasci, and Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo, is known as "Cav/Pag" and has been performed since 1893. The public performances of both works by the Windham Orchestra are set for June 5 and 12.

"This open rehearsal is an opportunity for everyone to understand the range of performers and participants, and to discover how we work to create a charged, visceral performance," said the Orchestra's Musical Director Hugh Keelan.
