For over 37 years, Market Square Concerts has been dedicated to the presentation of a wide repertoire of chamber music performed by distinguished professional artists, both established and emerging. Our mission also includes education and engagement of the general public in chamber music as an art form, as well as collaboration with other arts organizations and community partnerships. With an annual summer festival and six concerts in the regular season, Market Square Concerts presents premieres of newly composed music as well as the monumental works from the most revered composers from the past and present.
In the 2019-20 season Market Square Concerts celebrates inspiration, as well as beguiling and exhilarating surprises brought into our lives by encounters with compelling live performances. The opportunities for memorable musical experiences are plentiful, from recitals by Midori, one of the world’s most celebrated violinists, and cellist Andrei Ioniță, Gold Medal winner of the 2015 Tchaikovsky International Competition, to Grammy-winning Third Coast Percussion ensemble, venerable clarinetist David Shifrin’s new piano trio, award-winning Schumann Quartet and the celebration of Stuart Malina’s 20th year as the Artistic Director of the Harrisburg Symphony with Liebeslieder Waltzes for Piano Four Hands and Four Voices, Brahms’ two sets of most personal love songs. We hope this season’s offerings will inspire, enrich and expand your musical palate.
