Join Manchester Music Festival Artistic Director Adam Neiman prior to each festival concert on Thursday evenings from 6-7:30pm.
At 6:00pm, attend a 30 minute talk in the SVAC Yester House explaining not only what the composers were setting out to do, but the personal, social and cultural factors that influenced the music of that evening’s festival concert.
Adam will then welcome one of the evening’s musicians as a special guest beginning at 6:45pm in SVAC’s Arkell Pavilion for a 30 minute recital.
Stay afterwards for a 5-10 minute Q&A.
These pre-concert events are free and open to the public.
