Composer Andrew Norman’s music of “daring juxtapositions and dazzling colors” (New York Times) has made him one of the most widely admired young composers working today. His “staggering imagination” (Boston Globe) draws inspiration from disparate sources, including architecture, cinema, and video games – resulting in music that is fun, funny, and deeply moving. The fourteen performers include violinist Jennifer Koh ("one of our most thoughtful and intense musicians," New York Times), the Variation Trio, and string quartet The Rhythm Method ("uncompromising and unreserved," examiner.com) - with Andrew on hand to introduce his music.

Most of our 300 seats are for those who just show up - but as a courtesy to our friends who work late, we've set aside 100 advance reservations for general admission. All other seats are 'first come, first served' and are available as early as 6:45 pm, when the doors open. Note that reservations are good for entrance only, not for specific seats. Reservations are void after 7:20pm.
If reservations are gone, don't worry - just show up! It is rare for Music Mondays to turn anyone away.
PATRONS who have given $1000 or more in the last year, and SUSTAINERS who have given $500 or more in the last year may reserve four or two seats respectively in advance of concerts. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve.
