Summer Concerts

Pardon our dust…

The Loboda Studio, our main performance hall at Brucker Hall, will undergo a facelift this summer, so our traditional Thursday night Brucker Hall Summer Concert Series has not been scheduled. We will still give weekly performances on Fridays on the west side of The U.S. Capitol. Much will depend on when the work gets completed, and we will announce additional performances back at Brucker Hall as they become possible.
