Old Masters of Music and Art
Four times annually the Museum hosts free Sunday afternoon concerts curated in conjunction with the San Diego Early Music Society. Performed alongside works of European art in the Hibben Gallery, these concerts involve vocals and instruments from the Medieval, Baroque, and Renaissance periods. Listen to a recording of the November 10 concert with Corus Breviarii.
Holding concerts within the gallery space allows an opportunity to experience art in the context and to draw connections between the music and art of the period. Contact us for more information.
Thursday Night Jazz
Select Thursday evenings, Museum Galleries, Free after admission
Last summer, three nationally recognized artists Danny Green, Joshua White and Mark Dresser were selected as resident artists for the Museum's first iteration of Thursday Night Jazz. Each residency explored a single topic or theme critical to their work over the course of three concerts, taking place from June to August 2013. During these concerts, the galleries were open all evening and snacks and beverages were available from a no-host bar.
Stay tuned for more information on the 2014 season.
