About

Hear some of the world's greatest conductors discuss their personal insights on music and performing. Following each discussion, enjoy dinner served in one of the Kennedy Center's private reception rooms. This is a unique opportunity to hear the conductor's perspective in advance - and add an entirely new dimension to your concert-going experience!
