Message from the Director - Global Connections through Music

Celebrating seven remarkable decades, Town & Gown’s 2019- 20 season spans continents and bridges cultures. Visiting virtuosi from Moscow playing diverse repertoire on authentic folk instruments . . . performers from Beijing and San Francisco joining together to premiere an American work for guzheng (Chinese zither) and string quartet . . . and other internationally acclaimed artists sharing piano music of the Romantic period, art song of European and American traditions, and stunning works for clarinet, flute, and piano.

At a Town & Gown concert, the experience doesn’t end with the final encore. Immediately following each performance, all are invited to greet and share refreshments with the artists.

Please join us and affirm the universal language of music!
