Pre-Concert Talks
One hour before each concert, please join us in Macky Auditorium for informative insights on the evening’s program. Hosted by Marilyn Cooley of Colorado Public Radio, with a variety of speakers such as Music Director Michael Butterman, our guest artists and others, these events are FREE for ticket-holders, with open seating on the main floor of Macky. We do not close the doors during these events, so if you arrive once the talk has started we invite you to quietly find a place to sit.

Pre-concert talks will be held prior to the performances on the following dates:

Marilyn Cooley, host
April 27, 6:30 PM  with Michael Butterman and guests

Free hearing assistance devices are available at Macky Auditorium.
