Pre-Concert Talks

Pre-Concert Talks


Join us one hour before select concerts for a free pre-concert talk.

These free talks, led by renowned musicologists and passionate performers, are designed to enhance your concert experience and create deeper connections to the evening’s program.

Whether through fun facts about a composer’s life, exploring symphonic structure, or learning about the story behind an innovative work, you’ll leave intrigued, invigorated, and ready to get the most out of the music. Held one hour prior to select concerts.
