Most Yavapai Symphony Association concerts are preceded by a Pre-Concert Talk, hosted by David Pulk (Principal Timpanist of the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra).
The “talk” begins at 2:00 p.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m.
Generally, if there is a solo artist in the performance, that person participates in this program. Often there are opportunities for the audience to ask questions and/or participate in the discussion with the moderator and the featured artist.
Seating for the Pre-Concert Talk is “open” – meaning one can sit wherever they choose for this program. Following the talk, patrons are asked to move to their reserved seats in preparation for the orchestral performance.
