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.
