Preconcert Talks

Before each evening concert during the summer festival, you are welcome to attend a free pre-concert talk hosted by guest musicians, historians, and composers. All talks begin one hour before the performance and last about 20 minutes. For concerts held at Trinity Episcopal Church, talks take place in the adjoining Parish Hall building. Please ask ushers or box office staff for directions to the Parish Hall. 

All pre-concert talks are free and open to all.

UPDATE (7/12/2021): Due to venue limitations and best practices related to COVID seating, we are cancelling the pre-concert talks that were scheduled for August 2021. Printed programs with complete notes about the works will be given out to you as enter the performance, and these notes are also available to you in advance (click here). We apologize for the late change and any inconvenience this may cause.
