Your road map for each evening’s performance! These talks are complimentary to ticket holders and are held in Stieren Orchestra Hall twice before most performances. The first talk is given 2 hours before the performance and the second is 1 hour before. For best availability and due to popularity, the first talk is recommended. Prelude Talks are not offered on June 28, 2019, or before the Apprentice Showcase Scenes.
