Pocket Concerts loves classical music newbies!

Do you have a classical music newbie in your life? The folks at Pocket Concerts wants to meet them!

On Sunday, November 6 at 2pm, the Toronto-based house concert series presents “Pocket Concerts at The Wharf: String Quartet 101”, where Min-jeong Koh, Catherine Cosbey, Rory McLeod, and Amy Laing will play a string-quartet-friendly program of Mendelssohn, Schubert, and Haydn.

The best part? Pocket Concerts is reserving 10 tickets for interested listeners who have never been to a classical music concert before.

“If you or someone you know has never heard live classical music before, we want to give you the most intense and personal experience we can, for FREE. All you have to do is post a photo or video of yourself on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #classicalnewbie and tell us why you want to come.
