Faculty Artist Series

2018-2019 Season


For the past six years, the Faculty Artist Series has featured the talented collective of professional musicians who make up the Brookline Music School faculty. This season’s concerts reflect the diversity in music and in our community and include everything from classical chamber music and vocal music, to little-known 20th century works and a folk/Americana singer-songwriter duo. Each concert begins at 3:00pm and is presented in our intimate recital hall, giving audience members an up-close, interactive, and personal experience with the performers.

All concerts take place at Brookline Music School (25 Kennard Road, Brookline, MA ↗), begin at 3:00pm, and are followed by a Meet-The-Artists reception.

Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $10.
