SFCMP Presents How Music is Made

Composer Talks and Open Dress Rehearsals 2018-19


Facilitated by SFCMP Artistic Director, Eric Dudley

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.

All talks are free and open to the public.
