Talented young musicians from around the world come to Brunswick every summer to take part in the Bowdoin International Music Festival. This gathering provides these musicians with a unique opportunity to learn from world-class artists and hone their individual skills. Each year the Brunswick community eagerly awaits their concerts.
We are proud to partner with the Music Festival for the second year in a row, presenting a pair of concerts on June 30th and July 21st at the Museum.
The first concert on June 30th at 11:00 a.m. will relate to the Music Festival’s theme of “Re-invention,” and will complement the Museum’s current exhibition R. Luke DuBois—Now, whose work mines and transforms data and video into art.
The second concert on July 21st at 11:00 a.m. engages the theme of “Identity,” and relates to the Museum’s recently opened exhibition, This Is a Portrait If I Say So: Identity in American Art, 1912 to Today. This exhibition explores non-mimetic portraits in American art and poses important questions about likeness and personal identity.
In addition to these concerts, the Museum will also collaborate with the Music Festival on a special program for families on July 2nd at 10:00 a.m. Led by Phillip and David Ying, this event will allow young art and music enthusiasts to engage with talented musicians and explore the intersection of music and visual art.
We hope you will take advantage of the Bowdoin International Music Festival offerings this summer. If you would like to attend one of the concerts held at the Museum, please call 207-725-3276 to reserve your free tickets. Please note that space is limited.
