If you’d like to learn more about the music on our concert programs, Concert Talks are just what you need. Before every concert the WSO will present pre-concert talks which help prepare you and deepen your understanding of the music to be performed on the program. Sometimes our guest soloists join Maestro Hege for a discussion of their concerto collaboration. Free to all ticket holders, Concert Talks take place in the Concert Hall one hour prior to each performance.
Saturday Concerts: Concert Talk at 7:00 p.m., doors open at 6:45 p.m
Sunday Concerts: Concert Talk at 2:00 p.m., doors open at 1:45 p.m.
