Pre-concert Talks and Podcasts


Special preview talks are offered at 7 p.m. before each Classical Series concert. The preview is a free, informal discussion about the evening's program in the Orchestra level of the Concert Hall.

Previews are presented by knowledgeable hosts including KUSC radio personality Alan Chapman, and other distinguished hosts, and feature discussions about the music to be performed on that evening's concert — to enhance your understanding and enjoyment of the concert.

A 15-minute version of the Pre-concert Talk is available online for live-streaming or downloading approximately one week before each performance.
