Experience the Symphony beyond the concert hall!
Symphony musicians really understand what it’s like to be an adult learner. As people dedicated to life-long-learning, we're pleased to offer a number of chances for adults to explore orchestral music more deeply.
We strive to meet the needs of all learners by offering a number of different ways to delve further into the music we play and hear.
The Library Series - Get up close and personal with our musicians at these free noon-hour concerts.
Musically Speaking - Go behind the scenes into the life of a great composer with a special guest host.
Open Dress Rehearsals - These dress rehearsals are an exciting opportunity for audiences of all ages to experience the symphony in a relaxed and comfortable setting.
