Music at the Museum • Salon Series

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, May 7 / 3pm

The New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra concludes its third season with “Hidden Variables,” which unlocks musical puzzles hidden in compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach ("Art of the Fugue - Contrapunctus XIV"), Ludwig van Beethoven ("String Quartet No. 10 - Allegretto con Variazioni"), Charles Ives ("String Quartet No. 1 - From the Salvation Army"), Dmitri Shostakovich ("String Quartet No. 8 - Allegretto"), David Wolfson ("Deep Woods"), and Terry Riley ("G Song"). 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. Salon programs are free and open to the public.
