Announcing the 2018-2019 Faculty Artist Series


Brookline Music School is pleased to announce the 2018-2019 Faculty Artist Series. 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. Faculty Artist Series concerts begin at 3:00pm and take place in the intimate recital hall at Brookline Music School (25 Kennard Road, Brookline, MA) giving audience members an up-close, interactive, and personal experience with the performers. Each performance is followed by a Meet-the-Artists reception. Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $10. More information at
