Music at the Museum 

Join us for the fourth year of Music at the Museum, a monthly weekend concert series featuring classical and jazz musicians from the faculty of the Mason Gross School of the Arts Extension Division. The concerts take place at the Zimmerli and allow visitors to enjoy art and music side-by-side. Each concert is preceded by a brief talk related to the performance theme and, at the conclusion, guests are invited to take a tour of museum highlights. The Music at the Museum series is organized to present a broad repertoire accessible to audiences of all ages. 

Music at the Museum performances are FREE to the general public, but seating is limited.

Salon Series

“Angels & Demons”
Sunday, April 22 / 2pm

This salon features a romp through the sacred and the profane, starting with Franz Schubert’s immortal “Death and the Maiden.” The principal musicians continue with works by contemporary composers: Jesse Montgomery’s “Voodoo Dolls,” Mohammed Fairouz’ “The Named Angels,” Aaron Jay Kernis’ heavenly “Musica Celestis,” and Stacey Garrop’s exploration of religious madness, “Angels and Demons.” 

The Salon Series includes complimentary wine and cheese, conversation, and insightful comments by the NBCO’s Artistic Director Mark Hyczko. Visit the webpage for fee registration.
