The Music at the Museum Series was founded in 2000 through the efforts of the Huntington Museum of Art, Janet Ensign Bromley, and the Marshall University Music Department. In 2002, the Museum instituted a residency naming Victoria Bragin as its first Music Artist-in-Residence with the responsibility of performing as well as operating the Series. In 2006, she was succeeded by Dr. Donald A. Williams. The purpose of Music at the Museum is to provide to the community excellence in musical performance, a performance venue for musicians and composers, and to provide children the opportunity to experience the transcendent joy of music.
All concerts take place in Grace Rardin Doherty Auditorium. Admission is free.
Since programs and times are subject to change, please call the Museum (529-2701).
