Music at the Museum 

Join us for the second 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. These concerts take place at the Zimmerli and allow visitors to enjoy art and music side-by-side. Each concert is preceded by a master class or workshop related to the performance theme. Preconcert forums and concerts are 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 (wine and cheese.) 

Spring Salon / Sunday, April 24, 3pm
Join members of the New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra for an afternoon of music, wine, cheese, and conversation. This spring’s free program of “new classical” music explores the theme “Origins,” and features works influenced by composer Anqi Li’s native China. Artistic director Mark Hyczko provides lively and informative introductions to the works. Throughout the program, the short presentations are interspersed with conversation between the musicians and the audience, as well as wine and cheese tastings. The casual atmosphere is designed to help audiences understand what inspires the performers and their music, and the musical techniques involved. Various streets downtown and on campus will be closed on April 24 for New Brunswick Ciclovia. Please visit the event website for details.
