Adult Education


Pre-concert Forums — Since 2001, Aileen James, DMA, has facilitated informative pre-concert conversations with our Third Sunday chamber artists, and sometimes our special performances. This has become a favorite part of an InConcert Sierra afternoon.









Adult Education Seminars Our seminars are similar to our house concerts, providing an hour-long in-depth and informative presentation about varied topics relating to classical music followed by great conversation and refreshments.

Past presentations have included:  Ken Hardin on conducting, Peter Sumner, piano technician “All about the piano.”   We’ve enjoyed presentations from Dave Riddles about the bassoon; Richard Altenbach about music scored for movies – and a seminar on string quartets; David Eby about the cello; Murray Campbell about the oboe; and more!
