    Following last year’s successful debut of “Listening with Bob,” Master Players Music Historian-in-Residence Dr. Robert Greenberg returns to your screens in a webinar that explores the stories of great composers and their masterpieces one week before they are performed on our stage. With the help of Master Players Director Xiang Gao and our new Music Historian-in-Residence, the world renowned Dr. Robert Greenberg of The Great Courses, the audience will develop a deeper connection to classical music by learning: 

    • how to appreciate great music by understanding the musical language of the composers and performers
    • the inspiring, fun and lesser known stories and life experiences of the master musicians
    • the easy and fun ways to listen to the masterpieces we will present in the concert one week later ​

    Dr. Greenberg will then return to host our Xiang Gao & Friends event in person on Saturday, April 29, continuing the engaging conversation and enhancing the live concert experience for our audience. This event is underwritten by Karen & Michael Luck.

    60 minutes, Ages 10+​​​
