Musical Gifts: More than 50 free events in 2017-18

Violin detail

A thoughtful gift to music lovers in our region from the late Mina Brechemin Person has allowed the School of Music to present hundreds of free events over the past several years in the school’s Brechemin Auditorium. Mina’s family extends her legacy of generosity in 2017-18, enabling the School of Music to present 50-plus concerts with free admission, including recitals by acclaimed guest artists and our stellar faculty as well as the best work emerging from the school’s many performance studios. Events are listed below. Program details and updates will be posted at the links as programming is finalized.
