Music and Museum | A Kaleidoscope Concert

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art
Sunday, May 22, 2022

This month our Music and Museum program brings you a multifaceted Kaleidoscope program.

This Kaleidoscope Concert is in part a celebration of the Bechtler Collection. Just as the Bechtler Collection captures a remarkable era of art history with works by some of the most important and influential figures of modernism, including Alexander Nicolas de Staël, Andy Warhol and a wealth of other 20th-century notables May Music and Museum concert is also designed to cover a broad spectrum of musical offerings and gives the audience a sampling of everything from a contemporary American jazz string quartet to 20th Century Prokovief and minimalist composer Phillip Glass.
