Pre-concert Talks

Enhance your concert experience with FREE Pre-Concert Talks!

Music Director Alasdair Neale hosts half-hour talks that give insight into the creative process and reveal the backstory behind featured performances. Guest artists frequently appear alongside the Maestro to also share their stories and engage with the audience. This relaxed prelude is a perfect way to anticipate the upcoming performance and learn more about the pieces, orchestra, and solists.

Pre-Concert Talks are held in the concert hall before each Masterworks concert, beginning Saturdays at 7:00 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm (about 30 minutes long). FREE to all ticket holders. Auditorium doors open 90 minutes prior to curtain.


NOTE: Normally seating is open during the Pre-Concert talk, before reserved seating begins. However, for your safety during the pandemic, please take your ticketed seat during both talk and performance. We appreciate your understanding.
