Pre-Concert Talks

Get Inside the Music

Selected Carnegie Hall presentations begin with pre-concert talks to guide audiences through the music they are about to hear, providing an enlightening look at the repertoire and composers before the performance begins.

Featuring artists, leading musicologists, and scholars, this wide-ranging series of free and informal talks—some with recorded musical examples—offers something for everyone, from the experienced aficionado to the first-time concertgoer.

Doors open approximately 90 minutes before the concert and take place in the same hall as the performance. Ticket holders are invited to sit wherever they’d like, get close to the speakers, and be inspired to hear the music in an entirely new way.
