Music at First is a monthly concert series featuring chamber music performed by local and nationally recognized musicians. Concerts include a wide variety of classical and folk music that span genres and centuries of music heard around the globe. All concerts are free and open to the public. Support for Music at First comes in part by individual patrons and donors from the community. Contributions are accepted at the door at each performance. Please come and enjoy the marvelous sound of music in a beautiful and acoustically pleasing space.
