Pre-Concert Talks

Pre-Concert Talks

Pre-Concert Talks are given before each Masterworks Gold and Masterworks Diamond performance, at 7:05pm in the Orpheum auditorium. Seating for the talks is general admission in right centre and left centre in floor level seating.

Each talk is given by a musician, conductor or music expert from various colleges and universities, CBC, or the VSO, and focuses on that evening's concert repertoire and composers. The Pre-Concert Talks are a great way to get to know classical music a little better, and receive some insight into the evening's concert.
