About The Event

The popular series of monthly concerts in the galleries featuring young artists from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the joint program with Case Western Reserve University’s early & baroque music programs enters its fourth season. Outstanding conservatory musicians present mixed programs of chamber music amidst the museum’s collections for a unique and intimate experience—concerts which regularly feature instruments from the museum’s keyboard collection.

From standard repertoire to unknown gems, these early evening, hour-long performances are a delightful after work encounter, or the start of a night out. These concerts are free to all, and programs are announced week of the concert in the museum’s website.
