Pre-Concert Virtual Discussion

Join us at 3pm for a pre-concert discussion that delves into the history and context of the compositions featured on the program. CIM faculty Dr. Sam Bivens and Dr. Keith Fitch and CWRU faculty Dr. Susan McClary explore the musical influences and societal circumstances that affected the composers of these works, as well as their styles.

Post-Concert Virtual Lounge

Join us for a meet-and-greet with the performers just as they’re stepping off stage! Connect with the musicians, ask questions, and hear from the students and faculty what it means to present this type of program, what it’s like to be studying and performing music under the current circumstances and more.
