Post-Performance Talkbacks

Explore the finer points of the evening's performance with the musicians themselves. Every Wednesday concert starts early (7:00 pm) to leave time afterwards for a free informal discussion with our musicians and guest artists. This is an excellent opportunity to have your questions answered while they are fresh in your mind, and promote discussion around arts and culture.
