Michener Art Museum kicks off its Summer Concert Series

DOYLESTOWN, PA — The Michener Art Museum will kick off its three-part summer concert series A Little Night Music with the 1950s-themed musical program “Rosemary Clooney & Friends: Come On-a My House” on Wednesday, June 21 at 7 pm. The museum will present two additional performances as part of its summer series: the Brian Pastor Octet on Wednesday, July 26 at 7 pm, and Trinidelphia on Wednesday, August 9 at 7 pm. Tickets and information are available for all performances at MichenerArtMuseum.org.

“The Michener Art Museum has a long history of presenting exciting summertime concerts in the dramatic glass enclosed Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion overlooking the sculpture garden, but we are particularly pleased to kick off this year’s summer series with a performance by one of our longstanding cultural partners, the Bristol Riverside Theatre,” said Zoriana Siokalo, senior director of programs.

The June 21 performance, which features 1950s music made popular by female vocalists such as Doris Day, Patti Page, Kay Star, Teresa Brewer, and—of course—Rosemary Clooney, will be produced by the Bristol Riverside Theatre, an award-winning Equity theatre in Bucks County that is now in its 29th season. The Little Night Music summer series at the Michener is made possible by the support of the Pfundt Family Foundation.

In addition to the summer concert series, the Michener Art Museum will continue its dynamic array of year-round programs that include lectures, talks, tours, films, family events, art classes, and more throughout the year. Music programs will continue in the fall, with Jazz Nights, Friday Night Band Jams, and Sunday Afternoon Music at the Michener programs scheduled in October, November, and December.  For details about current and upcoming events, visit MichenerArtMuseum.org.
