All tickets must be booked in advance, and patrons entitled to a complimentary ticket should contact


Please note the change of this rehearsal due to the cancellation of the Philharmonia’s screening of Koyaanisqatsi. Due to the pandemic, the Philip Glass Ensemble is regretfully unable to perform, and the screening has therefore been cancelled.

Rehearsal passes already purchased for Koyaanisqatsi are valid for this rehearsal.
