Pre-Concert Lectures

Through our Music Education Program, with support from the Lois and Julian Brodsky Music Education Fund, PCMS will offer free pre-concert lectures before 25 concerts this season. These talks with respected musical scholars and composers provide a rich variety of insights, helping audiences to deepen their understanding of, and appreciation for, the music to be performed that evening. Weeknight lectures begin at 6:30 pm, and Sunday lectures begin at 1:45 pm. All lectures at the Kimmel Center will take place in the Comcast Room unless otherwise noted. We hope you will join us.
