Pre-talk One Hour before each performance

Curious to hear how composers turn stories into music? Interested in meeting the creative forces behind Spectrum? Now you can! We're excited to announce a pre-concert "Know Before the Show" that is open to all patrons prior to both our Saturday and Sunday performances. Nashville in Harmony and Intersection patrons are invited to enhance their experience by hearing the composer and the lyricist discuss the creation of this groundbreaking work. TJ Cole and Aiv Rubino will be speaking before both performances about the genesis of "Those Moments," and how new understandings about gender identity inspired and informed the writing. Learn how the personal stories of Nashville in Harmony singers shifted the direction of this project and became the foundation of the composition. Listen to the composer talk about the innovative musical techniques that you'll hear in the performance and why they were used. Artistic Directors Kelly Corcoran and Don Schlosser will also discuss other musical pieces on the program. Your encounter with this cutting-edge premiere will be enriched, if you know before the show!
