Pre-Concert Lecture Series

Go beyond the stage with our Pre-Concert Lecture Series—exclusive conversations between guest artists and expert music commentators before every concert. Free and open to the public.

All lectures begin one hour prior to each concert in the Chase Promenade North Tent, located on the west end of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Hosts include WFMT's Relevant Tones host Seth Boustead, Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Sounds and Stories contributor Laura Sauer, and Conductor and Organist Stephen Alltop.
