Duration: 60 minutes, ages 10 and up
This free-of-charge webinar is a gathering place—similar to a book club event—where music lovers, students, and newcomers can meet some of our guest artists for a “backstage chat” one week before they perform on our stage. With the help of Master Players Director Xiang Gao and our new Music Historian-in-Residence, the world-renowned Dr. Robert Greenberg of The Great Courses, the audience will develop a deeper connection to classical music by learning:
how to appreciate great music by understanding the musical language of the composers and performers
the inspiring, fun, and lesser-known stories and life experiences of the master musicians
the easy and fun ways to listen to the masterpieces we will present in the concert one week later
Dr. Greenberg will then return to host our Great Concertmasters event on Saturday, April 16th, in the premiere of our new concert feature, Listening with Bob, continuing the engaging conversation and enhancing the live concert experience for our audience.
