Pre-concert Talk Plymouth Phil

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Listening to Symphonic Music But Were Afraid to Ask

Conductor Karidoyanes introduces the basic elements of music, focusing on how to listen, what to listen for, and how to appreciate and enjoy musical creativity and expression.

Name That Tune

Conductor Steven Karidoyanes adapted the whimsical quiz show into an entertaining and educational feature exclusively for WATD 95.9-FM. On most Fridays at 7:10 AM, he joins radio host Rob Hakala for an enriching game of Name That Tune with the listening audience and call-in contestants, designed to promote a love of music.

Lunch & Listen

A program launched in February 2018 in senior housing developments in the local community.  Residents enjoy lunch followed by a performance by a small group ensemble of Phil musicians.  It gives seniors the opportunity to connect with their neighbors, meet the visiting musicians and share a beautiful musical experience together.  The purpose is quite simple:  to bring joy and fellowship to members of our community, through the power and universality of music.  The program is a collaboration among the Phil, The Center for Active Living, Old Colony Elder Services, and the Plymouth, Kingston and Duxbury Housing Authority.
