The University of Pennsylvania's Music Department and the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts, and the Otto E. Albrecht Music Library are proud to present our fourth jointly sponsored music series Music in the Pavilion. Taking place in the beautiful sixth-floor Class of 1978 Orrery Pavilion in Van Pelt Library, the series showcases an array of professional and international musicians, not only performing gems from standard concert repertoires but also premiering works found only in the wealth of materials—print and manuscript—held in the Kislak Center's collections, which will be concurrently exhibited in the adjacent Henry Charles Lea Library. Enriching the experience of each concert, attendees will have the opportunity to hear brief lectures by eminent scholars and graduate students that will contextualize the music historically, socially, and culturally.
