Music at the Museum WHEN: Sunday, February 19 / 1:30-3pm "From the Far East"
Join us for the next concert in this series featuring classical and jazz musicians from the faculty of the Mason Gross School of the Arts Extension Division. "From the Far East" features classical works for piano, violin, and cello, inspired by Asian musical traditions, performed by Young Eun Lee on cello, Chang Ho Lim on violin, and Cong Ji on piano.
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, at the conclusion, 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.
The Zimmerli's operations, exhibitions, and programs are funded in part by Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and income from the Avenir Foundation Endowment Fund, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Endowment Fund, and the Voorhees Family Endowment, among others. Additional support comes from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and the donors, members, and friends of the Zimmerli Art Museum.
