CLASSICAL CONVERSATIONS FEEDBACK

“It is always a pleasure to have a discussion by such wonderfully knowledgeable people.”

“I truly enjoy these pre-concert sessions. Not only do you learn about the pieces to be played, but the questions from the audience invoke more from the people on stage, and history and personal stories often come out. This experience definitely enhances the program! Thank you for providing this opportunity!”

“Fascinating talk. We appreciate this opportunity to get to know some of the musicians and conductors on a more personal basis.”

“I love the chats. I am new to concerts and I learn so much.”
