Listeners Club

Led by the fascinating and enthusiastic music lecturer, composer, and radio personality Jim Kendros, these FREE lecture / discussions take place the Wednesday and Thursday before an ESO concert weekend. Participants in this group will be invited to events including lunches, pot-lucks, backstage tours, closed dress rehearsals, and more. You never know who will show up to speak with Jim at the Listeners Club – perhaps our music director Andrew Grams, an ESO musician, or a guest conductor!
