Pre-Concert Lectures

Through our Music Education Program, with support from the Lois and Julian Brodsky Music Education Fund, PCMS offers free pre-concert lectures before 25 concerts this season. These talks with respected musical scholars and composers provide a rich variety of insights, helping to deepen your understanding of, and appreciation for, the music you're about to hear. Unless otherwise noted, weeknight lectures begin at 6:30 pm, and Sunday lectures begin at 1:45 pm. All lectures at the Kimmel Center take place in the Comcast Circle unless otherwise noted.
