Market Square Concerts presents its 39th season in full compliance with guidelines on social distancing, face coverings and size of gatherings. We look forward to sharing world class performances with Central PA community and return to the unique atmosphere of live musical experience missed by all of us during the past few months.
While we are still living through the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask for your understanding of the possible programming changes due to evolving international and domestic restrictions. We will do our best to keep all of you informed about any changes to the programs, artists and venues.
We deeply appreciate your support!
Market Square Concerts Season 2020-21
Great chamber music for your mind and heart
In 2020-21, Market Square Concerts celebrates musical journeys through time and space with its most geographically and historically far-reaching season yet. Six remarkably varied concert programs will connect you to music from Shakespearean England, the Italian Baroque era, 20th century Latin America and Eastern Europe, as well as Great American Songbook. The stellar group of venerable and emerging artists who will perform these concerts is equally diverse. Cuarteto Latinoamericano, winner of two Latin Grammy awards; Mark Markham a renowned American pianist; Tabea Debus, German recorder virtuoso; Jiji, a sensational Korean guitarist; Verona Quartet, winner of the 2020 Cleveland Quartet Award; will be performing for us. In what is becoming a new tradition, “Stuart and Friends” concert will conclude the season with music exploring evolution of Viennese style from Mozart to Korngold.
