The Rehearsal Club

NYFOS donors of $500 or more annually are automatically members of this special club. Join and you’ll be eligible to watch the rehearsal process as we craft each of our programs. From intimate, early rehearsals at Steven Blier’s Upper West Side apartment to the full dress run at Merkin Hall, Rehearsal Club members can see how the music—and the magic—of a NYFOS show is made. 

NYFOS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and donations are deductible to the full extent of the law.


Rehearsal periods typically begin 7-10 days before each performance and the specific schedule varies depending on the needs of the artists. Email info@nyfos.org to inquire about attending a rehearsal for a specific performance and we’ll work with you to find a mutually agreeable time. Seating at early rehearsals is extremely limited—a one-of-a-kind experience for fans of incredible singing.
