Music has been an integral part of the Gardner experience ever since the museum opened in 1903 with a celebration that featured a performance by members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Fall 2013 Concert Season
Tickets for the Gardner Museum's fall 2013 concert season will be on sale soon. Have you experienced a concert in Calderwood Hall yet? Each season brings new opportunities to hear amazing classical, jazz and contemporary music in this unique, intimate setting.
Isabella Stewart Gardner filled the museum with artists of all kinds during her lifetime, including many notable musicians and composers who drew inspiration from the museum’s unique atmosphere.
Today, the Gardner Museum honors this musical legacy by welcoming world-renowned musicians and exciting emerging artists to perform classical masterpieces, new music, and jazz on Sunday afternoons and select Thursday evenings. The museum’s rich musical program is also available to listeners across the globe through concert videos, audio recordings, and a free classical music podcast.
Calderwood Hall’s inaugural season kicked off in January 2012 and included performances by resident chamber orchestra A Far Cry, the Claremont Trio, New York Festival of Song, the Callithumpian Consort, and jazz students from Berklee College of Music.
