No lectures here!  Join us before and after select concerts to meet, mix, and mingle with the performers, conductors, composers, and guest artists of NOI.  Hosts will guide conversations, but there will always be a chance to ask questions.  Our Encore Bar will be open for snacks and beverages, so pull up a chair and join us in lively conversation.
