Pre- and Post-Concert Talks



The Charlotte Symphony is committed to delivering exceptional musical experiences. By sharing information and the exciting stories behind the music before each Classical concert, we hope concertgoers will feel more connected to the in-concert experience.

At 6:30 p.m. before each concert, Resident Conductor Christopher James Lees or a guest conductor or artist leads a discussion about the evening's repertoire and composers. Additionally, join us immediately following the performance at the front of the orchestra level for a post-concert talk-back with the Maestro, or conductor that evening.

Pre- and Post-Concert Talks are free and accessible to all Charlotte Symphony ticketholders.
