Tonight's Free Musicians' Forum Concert

Tonight at 7:00 pm is the second Musicians’ Forum concert of the season. Curated and produced by the NWS Fellows, Musicians’ Forums come alive through musical spontaneity and unique artistic partnerships.

Musicians’ Forums give NWS Fellows valuable experience in concert programming, production, and promotion. An exciting example of ‘Fellow-driven’ events that take place throughout the season, the Musicians’ Forums in the past have included solo, chamber, and chamber orchestra repertoire, as well as Fellows’ own compositions.

Tonight’s program takes a diverse walk through classical music from the second half of the 20th century.
