About Our Cultural Outreach Programs

Many of the talented artists we present in our World Tour of Music concert series and other musical events help us expand our outreach with smaller public workshops across the region the week prior to their larger-venue public concerts. With many thanks to the libraries, senior centers, and other organizations who welcome us we are pleased to present the following public workshops. Watch this space for more events as we fill out our concert schedule.
