Concerts at the OSilas

Please join us for the concert season like no other, where the art meets the music! 

We invite you to a delightfully different concert experience. Concordia Conservatory presents the third season of Concerts at the OSilas, in which our music faculty is featured in the themed concerts, and the music performed among beautiful artworks. 

This season’s three captivating musical programs are inspired by exhibitions in the OSilas Gallery, and will include a program exploring human rights and music, a concert of art song and piano inspired by nature, and an afternoon of vocal and instrumental masterpieces of the music of our time. 

We welcome you to the beautiful and acoustically rich environment of the OSilas Gallery, where you can view the art up-close while you listen and watch the masterful acrobatics of music-making in the intimate atmosphere. Our concerts go beyond music - the musicians will briefly talk about the compositions they will play.

This music program will celebrate composers who became some of the most influential, boundary-crossing musicians of our time, exploring art song repertoire. These artists made a great impact not only on music, but on art and culture as well. The program complements the exhibition Bronxville Collects: Selections in Contemporary Art from the Local Collector.

This program explores the relationship between music and humanity through the works of composers who didn’t let the injustice they suffered stop them from creating art. Through compositions which give listeners solace and peace in troubled times, the program will follow the photographic exhibition Our Rights, Our Freedoms, Always: Celebrating Human Rights Through the Camera Lens.
