A road map for your 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 two hours before the performance and the second is one hour before. Due to popularity, the first talk is recommended for best seating. Prelude Talks are not offered on June 28, August 10, or before the Apprentice Showcase Scenes on August 11 and 18, 2019. Seating is limited – reservations are not required.
