The Gregory Allicar Museum of Art and the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance are entering a second season of the collaborative visual and auditory experience with the Music in the Museum Concert Series. The series explores the cross-fertilization between music and the visual arts, with performances by CSU Music faculty and brief historic background given by faculty from the Department of Art and Art History and the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance.
In this series, music is performed against the backdrop of works of art ranging from Renaissance and Baroque paintings and sculpture to expressions by contemporary artists from around the globe. We invite you to holistically absorb the power of music and the visual arts and the relationships between them through these unique presentations.
Please register for each event, due to limited seating, at artmuseum.colostate.edu.
