There are all kinds of benefits to having a hometown symphony, not the least of which is the opportunity to see world-class musicians in action. You can also get up close and personal with those musicians, too, because the Spokane Symphony frequently offers intimate master classes hosted by its visiting artists. On Friday afternoon, before he features in this weekend’s Classics concert, Israeli pianist Ran Dank teaches a master class at the Fox Theater that’s free and open to the public. He’ll be listening and giving feedback to a select handful of young piano students; the class allows audiences to understand an artist’s musical outlook before seeing them perform with a full orchestra. The Classics program itself, titled “Beethoven and Dvořák” and featuring Dank in a performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, happens at the Fox Theater on Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 3 pm.
