We invite you to attend our series of free pre-performance talks with the artists and Lane Series Director Natalie Neuert. These talks take place in the hall from 6:30-7:00pm prior to select performances and allow for a dialogue between artists and audience in the intimate setting of our Recital Hall. Designed to enhance the audience members’ experience, these talks cover everything from what to listen for in the music, to the unique life choices of a touring musician, to the specialty instruments, to lives of the composers, and more. There is always time for a lively discussion and questions from the audience. Please try to arrive before the talk begins so as not to disrupt the discussion.
“Meet the Artist” Receptions
“Meet the Artist” Receptions are held following most performances at the UVM Recital Hall. These receptions are open to all audience members and hosted by the Lane Series Community Relations Committee, whose members serve light snacks, desserts and beverages in the lobby of the Recital Hall. We believe that the opportunity to linger after the performance, have a bite to eat, and meet the performers is one of the traditions that makes the Lane Series special.
Master Classes & Workshops
Throughout the season the Lane Series offers a variety of master classes and workshops which provide an opportunity for students and community members to engage with our visiting artists on a deeper level. Many of our artists are not only stellar performers, but accomplished educators as well! Master classes are individual lessons given on-stage to advanced students, and are open to the public so that all in attendance can benefit from the teacher’s comments. Workshops are focused on the group learning experience, and often benefit from the artist’s expertise in a particular area.
