Music at the Museum 

Join us for the third  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

Join members of the New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra for an afternoon of free music and light refreshments.

Sunday, January 29 / 3pm
The New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra continues its third season with “Dark Matter,” which features compositions by Jeffrey Ryan (“Quantum Mechanics - I. Fission”), Bela Bartok (“String Quartet No. 5 - IV. Andante”), Felix Mendelssohn (“String Quartet No. 6 - Requiem for Fanny”), Pavel Haas (“String Quartet No. 2 – II. The moon and I”), and John Luther Adams (“The Wind in High Places”). This salon series introduces visitors to what inspires the orchestra members, who present short, theme-based works from historic and current composers mixed with tastings, wine pours, and conversation in an informal atmosphere. The spring salon takes place on May 7 and explores the theme “Hidden Variables.” Salon programs are free and open to the public.
