Enjoy a free talk hosted by well-known conductor, musician, singer and speaker John Kendall Bailey in the main auditorium one hour before each classical series concert. He’ll offer his insights into the music being performed that evening, sometimes joined by a composer or guest artist involved in the program. Select pre-concert programs will also include a short performance by talented young musicians who receive an Honorable Mention at the Young Artist Competition.

The talks begin at 7:00 pm from the Paramount Theatre stage.
