Detailed and informative program notes on each of our Masterworks concerts, authored by Dr. Richard E. Rodda, will be available on our website at the beginning of the orchestra season. The complimentary program book at the concert hall also includes program notes for the Masterworks concerts as well as artist bios and other program-related information for all concert series.
Pre-Concert Conversations have wowed audiences and critics alike, not only with their depth of musicianship but with their approachable and personable nature. These conversations allow for Mozart, Shostakovich, Beethoven, Mahler and others to be understood in the most personal and human terms, while the inside story of their music is explained.
Music Director Michael Francis combines a talk with musical demos by the orchestra, before a performance of the entire work. Admission is pay what you can.
