Music-lovers filled the Bowdoin College Museum of Art’s Bowdoin Gallery on Thursday, June 29, 2017, for a lunchtime concert. This was the first of the “Music in the Museum” events being staged as part of the Bowdoin International Music Festival, featuring some of the young, talented musicians who are taking part in the festival.

The program featured music by Franz Schubert, Franz Doppler, Charles Ives, and Johannes Brahms. A second performance on July 20 will showcase the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and more.

In addition to these concerts, the Museum will also collaborate with the Music Festival on a special program for families on Saturday, July 15. 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 the visual arts.
