PRE-CONCERT LECTURES

Hosted by Jim Kendros
 

Why not increase your knowledge of the evening’s concert repertoire? Beginning 1 hour before Masterworks concerts at the James Lumber Center for the Performing Arts and Cressey Center for the Arts at Lake Forest Academy, music lecturer Jim Kendros will present an entertaining and highly informative overview of the music you are about to hear. Kendros keeps the presentation light and down to earth – he’s compared the music of Schumann and Brahms to an Oreo cookie – come find out why.

Pre-concert lectures are sponsored by The Lake Forest Symphony Guild
