A Master Class is a seminar conducted by a master musician in front of an audience for highly skilled music students and/or performers. The master musician often uses the performers to make general points for the benefit of the audience. Sometimes the teacher will select one or two aspects of the performance to improve through exercises and/or demonstrations. PSO Master Classes are FREE for students, and $10 for adults. The following Master Classes have been scheduled for the 2013-2014 Season as part of the PSO “Encore Series” performances:
- Master Class with violinist Ilya Kaler – 8 September 2013
- Master Class with pianist Fabio Bidini – 2 February 2014
