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.
