ArtsTalk

For almost every scheduled performance, SPA plans a pre-performance discussion or post-performance session to provide patrons with context and insight into the art and artistry that graces our stages and fills our halls. Students and teachers are particularly encouraged to join these conversations with professional musicians, dancers, choreographers, directors, tour managers and local experts. Topics of discussion can include the design and rehearsal process, training and preparation for performances, inspirations for the work of art, historical background and relevant current events.
