New This Year – Classical Chats!
HSO is trying a new approach…instead of having the pre-concert talk immediately prior to the concert, this talk is now part of our Classical Chat series. This popular informative and informal talk, open to all ticket holders, will be held at the 6th Floor Auditorium in Freedom Village, on Thursday, April 27th from 3:00-4:00pm. Please join us for this wonderful presentation!
