Pre-Concert Talks

Before most concerts PBO is pleased to present a Pre-Concert Talk. These illuminating discussions feature a PBO musician, guest director, or scholar and help enhance the concert-going experience. Instrument demonstrations, lectures, or fun Q&A sessions make Pre-Concert Talks a great way to add context to the musical program.

Talks occur 1 hour before the concert. At First Baptist Church they are held in the Fellowship Hall and at Reed College they are held in Room 320 of the Performing Arts Building adjacent to Kaul Auditorium. There is no Pre-Concert Talk before Messiah performances. Please check individual concert pages for more information.

Education Videos

Join PBO musicians as they introduce their instruments. These fun videos are great for those wanting to learn more about baroque instruments and for gathering a few fun facts for those that have been to concerts before.
