We are thrilled to continue our popular Chamber Music in the Galleries concert series featuring young artists and faculty from Case Western Reserve University’s historical performance program, from the Cleveland Institute of Music, and from the Music Settlement. The repertoire performed at each concert is inspired by the art on view in the gallery in which the performance occurs.

This evening’s Black History Month program features Linking Legacies, an ensemble comprising multiple generations of African American classical artists that honors classical works by African American composers with deep ties to Northeast Ohio. The group is performing in front of Amy Sherald’s He was meant for all things to meet.

The Chamber Music in the Galleries series occurs on the first Wednesday of the month, December through May with the exception of January.
