Pre-Performance Discussion Series

Pre-Performance Discussions are offered on select evenings in conjunction with the Filene Center summer concert series. These discussions offer insight and interpretation of the evening's performance. Discussions begin one hour before the scheduled show time and end with plenty of time to reach your seat before the show starts. The discussions take place on the Old Farmhouse Lawn unless otherwise noted.

Location: The Old Farmhouse Lawn is located to the left of the main gate/box office area for the Filene Center. Chairs are provided or feel free to bring a blanket and enjoy your picnic during the presentation. For additional information e-mail us or call (703) 255-1824.
