Each concert is preceded by a short curator talk that connects the evening’s music to Museum exhibitions or artworks. The concerts feature coffee and desserts at intermission and the Thronson Café will be open for drinks and dinner by Toscana until 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited and all non-refundable tickets will be held at the door.

About Concerts on Kentmere: Site & Sound

Just prior to each concert, a Museum curator will present a brief personal insight connecting selected artworks with the evening’s musical offerings.
