Concerts

 

 

We strongly believe that regular concert attendance is an essential element of musical education. Concerts not only introduce young music students to the masterpieces of classical music but also provide ample inspiration for the necessity of everyday practice.

Our concert source page provides information about local classical music venues with descriptions and links to their websites.
