Charleston Symphony Orchestra Classes

  Masterworks Series Listener’s Guides

 These informal discussions will not be music theory, music history or even “music appreciation”  so much as a practical guide for listeners– emphasizing how things fit together musically, what to listen for and the artistic impact of the music offered at the Masterworks concerts of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra.

The talks will take place (usually!) on the Sundays before the concerts (usually!!) at 12:30 pm, in the Charleston Day School library just across Archdale Street. The talks are open to all, and the building is accessible to everyone. Please join Fred Himmelein on the following dates:
