                                     Listener’s Guide to Charleston Symphony Orchestra’s Masterworks                            

12:30 p.m., Charleston Day School Library

Symphony fan? Ticket-holder? Music fan? These informal discussions, highlighting the Charleston Symphony Orchestra’s Masterworks concerts, will not be music theory, music history, or even “music appreciation.” Instead, these talks will be 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 CSO concerts. Led by music aficionado Fred Himmelein, the talks will take place before the upcoming concerts at 12:30 p.m. in the Charleston Day School Library just across Archdale Street. The workshops are open to all and the building is accessible to everyone.
