Smooth jazz notes floating toward you from across the room, sweet and effortless classical piano melodies, and a spine-tingling harmonious chorus. What better way to enjoy art than by adding music to it? This year’s concert series is already shaping up to be one of the most anticipated yet.
October 2011 – April 2012
This series features acts such as the Moscow String Quartet, Martin Helmchen on the piano, the London Handel Players, and harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani. Each concert is held in the beautiful Music Room of the mansion, and tickets cost $30 each.
Special musical performances are also offered throughout the year, which connect the music to the works within the collection and the early 20th century history of the mansion. These concerts are $50 each and are followed by a reception.
St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble will play works by Brahms and Schumann in the museum’s grand halls for only $35.
Other musical nights include BrooklynNites Jazz at the museum’s Thursdays @ 7 series, offered occasionally in conjunction with tours, artist talks, films, and more.
