Andrew Grams and
The Elgin Symphony Orchestra
Elgar Enigma Variations
Andrew Grams and the ESO demystify the process of creating a masterwork. Dive deep into Elgar’s Enigma Variations in the first half of the event, as Andrew Grams explores what makes a great piece of music using excerpts performed by the ESO. After intermission, the orchestra plays the entire work with the audience experiencing a deeper connection to the piece.
Niesa Patton, Director of Development: The first season of Inside the Music was wildly popular! Audiences really like to learn more about classical music in this relaxed setting. Andrew Grams is a master at sharing his enthusiasm and you leave wanting to know more! I recommend this event because it introduces new audiences to great music, but there is something for long-time classical music lovers to learn as well.
