Enjoyed the sound of Classical Music but don’t know much about it?
Ever felt unsure about how to listen to the music?
Wondered about the composers?
Now you can gain and broaden your understanding about orchestral music at the Gail Borden Public Library through the Elgin Symphony Orchestra's Listeners Club.
Using the model of the familiar and ever-popular "book club," you are invited to prepare for each club meeting through recordings and related materials. Prepare as much or as little as you like. No matter your level of incoming knowledge, you are sure to learn much and enjoy the music even more.
Each meeting takes place on a Wednesday afternoon from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
