Pre-Concert Talks

Hastings International 2017

Join us one hour before select concerts for a free pre-concert talk! Pre-Concert talks are designed to enhance your enjoyment of the concert by providing insights into the works on the program.

Hosted by the MSO Artistic Director/Conductor and frequently joined by the guest artist for the concert. The music experts share different viewpoints and approaches to their conversations about the music. Some might explore why a composer wrote a particular piece of music, examining its social and historical context. Others might look at how a piece of music is constructed, guiding listeners through recorded excerpts of the works being performed.

Pre-Concert talks are FREE and open to all concert tickets holders. Speakers and locations are subject to change.
