Pre-Concert Lecture with Destinee Siebe
This season, Lakeside Chautauqua is collaborating with the Conservatory of Music of Baldwin Wallace University to provide lectures prior to select Lakeside Symphony Orchestra concerts. These talks prepare listeners to more fully understand and enjoy the evening’s symphony concert. Join us at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9 in the Fountain Inn Aigler Room for a Pre-Concert Lecture led by Destinee Siebe.
“People, Places, Poems”
Prepare for the extraordinary beauty of this evening’s Lakeside Symphony Orchestra performance, featuring music by Elinor Remick Warren, Camille Saint-Saëns and Bedřich Smetana. Presenter Destinee Siebe will lead an exploration of the locales and literature portrayed in this music. In addition to these sources of inspiration, Siebe will introduce some of the people – composers, performers, patrons, and many more – who helped create these pieces and continue to give them life today.
