Pre-Performance Discussions


Sponsored by the Friends of the Center for the Arts.

Join us 45 minutes prior to the curtain for our Great Performances at Mason events, and enjoy our lively and popular Pre-Performance Discussions. These forums are led by local experts and, occasionally, by the artists themselves. Here, patrons are encouraged to ask questions and are able to gain a bit of insight and knowledge about our world-renowned guest artists. Held on the spacious and comfortable Grand Tier III Lobby, these captivating exchanges provide a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes of a great performance!
