Symphonic Series concerts each include a 7 p.m. pre-concert Prelude talk and a post-concert AfterWORDS discussion led by the maestro, so plan extra time at each end of the evening to participate in these great activities!

    Our Classics Uncorked concerts at Kalamazoo's Epic Center pair wine, desserts, and coffee with dramatic musical selections, including music from Chile and a narrated, small production of Stravinsky's "Soldier's Tale." The Classics Uncorked concerts make memorable nights out with friends or a significant other. Make sure to check out both the Winter and Spring Evening programs!
