Symphonic Forays

Discover more about the music you love! The San Luis Obispo Symphony is delighted to offer a pre-concert lecture series titled Symphonic Forays.  These highly informative and enjoyable discussions are led by Dr. Craig Russell before each Classics in the Cohan concert at 7 p.m. in Harman Hall.   

Craig Russell holds a Ph.D. in historical musicology and is presently a professor of music, teaching both music appreciation and music history, at Cal Poly. He has been the recipient of both the California State University Trustees' Outstanding Professor Award (CSU's highest honor) and the Outstanding Professor Award at Cal Poly. He speaks often at musicological conferences and conventions in North America, Mexico, and Spain and has published over forty articles on eighteenth-century Hispanic studies, Mexican Cathedral music, the California Missions, baroque guitar music, and American popular culture.
