The University of Pennsylvania Music Department, the Kislak Center for Special Collections,
Rare Books and Manuscripts, and the Otto E. Albrecht Music Library are pleased to announce
fall concerts in the popular Music in the Pavilion series. Taking place in the beautiful sixth-floor
Class of 1978 Pavilion in Van Pelt Library, the series showcases an array of professional and
international musicians, not only performing gems from standard concert repertoires but also
premiering works found only in the wealth of materials—print and manuscript—held in the
Kislak Center collections, which will be concurrently displayed in the adjacent Henry Charles Lea
Library. Enriching the experience of each concert, attendees will have the opportunity to hear
brief lectures by eminent scholars, performers, and graduate students that contextualize the
music historically, socially, and culturally.
All concerts are open to the public and free of charge. While concerts are generally held on
Friday, this semester they will be held on Thursdays. The pre-concert talk is at 6:15 pm,
followed by the concert (no intermission) at 7:00 pm.
