Event description

Description

Spend an afternoon indulging your eyes and ears. We begin the afternoon with an organ concert at First Presbyterian Church played by Director of Worship and the Arts and Organist, Jens Korndörfer. The musical pieces chosen are inspired by European Masterworks: The Phillips Collection.

Throughout the concert, Claudia Einecke, Frances B. Bunzl Family Curator of European Art, will draw out connections between the music and the works on display in the High's galleries. Immediately following the talk, see the exhibition itself on the second floor of the High.

Seating is limited. Please check in for the program at First Presbyterian Church (next door to the High Museum of Art).

Free Member tickets available with promotional code sent by email.
