Each year Classical 91.5 presents a series of films that are related to classical music in some way. Selected by our classical music hosts Julia Figueras, Brenda Tremblay and Mona Seghatoleslami, each film chosen exemplifies the power of music in a non-traditional narrative. Films are often preceded by subject-related live music in The Little Cafe or followed by live panel discussion following the film. Tickets are $7.
