Our mission is to provide life-changing educational opportunities to participants of all ages and to build community through the arts. We accomplish our objectives through comprehensive, year-round educational offerings that advance the highest standards of artistic excellence in practice and instruction, nurture the love and appreciation of the arts, and build community amongst participants. We believe that outstanding faculty, curriculum, and preparation for events inspires outstanding achievement, builds communities, and changes lives. We think of all events we run as being gateways to personal excellence for our participants. Whether training in ballet, musical theatre, visual arts, or music; old or young; beginner or advanced; our aim is to educate, motivate, and inspire excellence and artistry at every level of an individual's development. We invite you to achieve beyond boundaries, transform yourself, and impact others . . . with us!
Music at the Museum concert series continues in December with a fun selection of animal-themed works. "Imagine that! Musical depictions of carnival scenes, fairy tales, and composer's favorite pets," will be a repertoire by Warin, Pryor, Schocker, Martin, Saint-Saens, and Krouse. Our faculty members -- Leighann Narum on guitar and Michelle Grondin Gegrich on flute -- will perform the works. Stay afterward to view Zimmerli's two pet-themed exhibits: "Cats vs. Dogs: Illustrations for Children’s Literature," and "On the Prowl: Cats and Dogs in French Prints."
Music at the Museum is a monthly weekend concert series featuring classical and jazz musicians from the faculty of the Mason Gross School of the Arts Extension Division. The concerts take place at the Zimmerli and allow visitors to enjoy art and music side by side. Each concert is preceded by a brief talk related to the performance theme and guests are invited to take a tour of museum highlights. The Music at the Museum series is organized to present a broad repertoire accessible to audiences of all ages.
Music at the Museum performances are FREE to the general public, but seating is limited
