Before most full-length concerts, you are welcome to attend a free pre-concert talk hosted by guest musicians, historians, and composers. All talks begin 45 minutes before the performance and last about 20 minutes. For concerts held at Trinity Episcopal Church, talks take place in the adjoining McCracken Hall. Please ask ushers or box office staff for directions to McCracken Hall. At other venues, talks usually take place from the stage.
Free 20-minute talks will be held prior to the following concerts:
