The Y’s Men Classical Music Society offers educational and inspirational programs of classical music from the 17th century through contemporary times.

Begun in 2016, the Society meets monthly from September through May on the first Tuesday of the month from 2:45 to 4:15 p.m. in the media room of the Westport Center for Senior Activities. Following introductory remarks, a DVD is shown featuring a particular composer, musician or conductor. The program concludes with a discussion of the presentation, a Q&A session, and suggestions for future programs.

Previous programs have focused on such leading luminaries as Gustav Mahler, Hector Berlioz, Leonard Bernstein, Arturo Toscanini and Bela Bartok. Future programs will cover similar giants in classical music. The Society is a collaborative effort with members often suggesting programs.

Because of limited seating, reservations are required to attend. For additional information, contact Ed Bloch.
