Celebrating 40 years of magical music for all ages

Our 40th year of musical performances include these highlights that you won’t want to miss!

  • James Ehnes, 2019 Grammy Winner for Best Classical Instrumental Solo, and Andrew Armstrong, internationally acclaimed pianist performing and all-Beethoven recital
  • Spektral Quartet, whom The New Yok Times wrote, “they have everything, a supreme technical command that seems to come easily, a capacity to make complicated music clear, and most notably…an ability to cast a magic spell”
  • Suwannee Swing Saloon, an American classic reborn! From the sorrowful laments of the lonesome cowhand on the prairie to the whimsical jubilations of Radio City Music Hall, they bring you a rare look into the unlikely blend of culture and attitudes which distinguish this one-of-a-kind genre of music.

All concerts are FREE to make it easier for young families to introduce their children to the wonderful world of music. Our ability to provide an excellent concert series is due to our incredible patrons and donors, the support of our community and people like you.

Please donate what you can.
