Composer Talks & Open Dress Rehearsals #HMIM 2016-17

Posted by April 23, 2016

SFCMP presents
How Music is Made: Composer Insights 

Open to the public
Facilitated by SFCMP Artistic Director, Steven Schick

In our How Music is Made series, composers reveal their motivation behind the notes and together we discover the inspiration and narrative behind each piece. We invite you to become privy to these secrets by joining us for an open dress rehearsal of the piece in the afternoon, followed by a discussion about the work with the composer, followed by the full concert that evening. Bring your best music-loving friends and join the intimate conversation that was made for the curious.
#HMIM

All talks are free and open to the public.
Open dress rehearsals precede the talk.
Concert follows that evening: Learn more
