Symphony 101

Pre Concert ChatEnhance your enjoyment of great music with Symphony Nova Scotia’s free “Symphony 101” classes! Learn about music, orchestras, composers, and more in a relaxed, accessible format at the Halifax Central Library.

Classes are led by well known music lecturer Adrian Hoffman, a Dalhousie University instructor and former CBC Radio host. Each class will also feature Symphony Nova Scotia musicians, who will give up close and personal perspectives on their instruments and their roles as professional musicians.

All classes are one hour long, and free of charge for all ages.
