New On-line Series of Classical Music Watch Parties!

Starting March 23, 2020

Enjoy classical music together with OSM Music Director Roger Kalia, musicologist Christine Wisch, and friends.  The complete ‘live party experiences’ are accessible via Facebook.  Each party starts with a brief pre-concert talk, followed by fantastic music, insightful commentary, live chats, questions & answers, and connections through music.  Example party subjects have included Dvorak Symphony No. 8, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, Bernstein’s “Symphonic Dances” from West Side Story, Mahler Symphony No. 5, and a family-geared presentation of Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf”.  Many more wonderful parties are planned!

Please visit www.facebook.com/OrchestraSM for program descriptions and scheduled dates and times.  The actual live programs are hosted at www.facebook.com/roger.kalia.  See you there!

P.S.  For those of you who do not use Facebook or for anyone who has missed a ‘live’ party, you can still enjoy the pre-concert talks and featured concert pieces.  These are archived at Roger’s Watch Party YouTube playlist site.
