Pre-Performance Discussions

Join us 45 minutes prior to the curtain for our Hylton Presents events, and enjoy our lively and popular Pre-Performance Discussions. These forums are led by local experts and, occasionally, by the artists themselves. Here, patrons are encouraged to ask questions and are able to gain a bit of insight and knowledge about our world-renowned guest artists. Held on the spacious and comfortable Buchanan Partners Art Gallery, these captivating exchanges provide a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes of a great performance!

Pre-Performance Discussions are sponsored by Regency Friends of the Hylton.
These Discussions are Free for ticketed patrons attending the performance.
