Music at the Museum 

Welcome to Music at the Museum, a concert series featuring Mason Gross Extension Division faculty members in concert at the Zimmerli Art Museum’s intimate Lower Dodge Gallery. Now in its fifth season, concerts are programmed to complement Zimmerli exhibitions and emphasize interdisciplinary connections among art, music, and culture. Concert events begin with a preconcert discussion between performers and audience members followed by an hour-long concert, and then a short gallery tour. 

These concerts are appropriate for audience members of all ages and backgrounds. Admission is FREE, and seating is first come, first served. Please arrive early to secure a seat!

See you at the museum!
