Music in the Pavilion

2018-2019 Concert Season Schedule
Music in the Pavilion logo

The music series Music in the Pavilion takes 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 are concurrently exhibited in the adjacent Henry Charles Lea Library. Enriching the experience of each concert, attendees have the opportunity to hear brief lectures by eminent scholars and graduate students that will contextualize the music historically, socially, and culturally.
