Immediately before each
concert, in the CAC's Capitol Lounge at 6:30 PM, Dr. Gary Boerkel
introduces the concert program, providing background information that
enriches the listening experience. The informal presentation style and
sure-to-be-of-interest background information on the composers, periods
and audience response typically illustrated by the scores regularly
draws SRO audiences. Immediately after each concert,
the audience is invited to meet the WSO musicians in the Capitol Lounge.
The après-performance opportunity extends the "glow" and the opportunity
to talk about the experience with others.
