Our concerts are always free and open to the public, though donations are gladly accepted.

Please be aware that seating at all concerts is first-come, first-serve and in some venues is limited. We recommend arriving 15-20 minutes before the concert to ensure that you're comfortably seated for the program.

To improve audience access, we plan to livestream the May concert. Details will follow soon.

What to Expect  

If you're new to concerts of classical music (or even if you're not), welcome and enjoy the music. Our concerts are typically an hour and a half to two hours long with a ten to fifteen minute break (or intermission) somewhere in the middle. A concert program usually consists of three to five pieces. At least one will be quite substantial and will take up most or all of one half of the concert.

During the concert, you should settle in, sit back, experience the music, and react to it. In formal concert settings there ARE some conventions and bits of etiquette - who to applaud and when to applaud, for example - that strike many first time concert goers as weird, but knowing them in advance can make the concert experience more comfortable, and even frequent concert goers can stand a refresher from time to time.
