Pre-Concert Conversations

Education & Outreach

Insights into the composers & specific pieces being performed

Pre-concert conversations are presented 45 minutes before the start of every CMSFW concert. These lectures provide insight into the composers and specific pieces being performed that afternoon. Informative conversation combines with an audio/visual presentation that explores the composers’ backgrounds and musical snippets from the works. Our goal is to help the audience connect more to the music being performed.

In addition to providing important information to our in-person concert audience, Pre-concert conversations also connect to a much wider audience when they are uploaded to our YouTube channel. You can listen to previous Pre-concert conversations here.
