Organizer MARKET SQUARE CONCERTS

Organizer of Summermusic 2021 Concert III: HARLEM QUARTET

Since 1981, Market Square Concerts has been dedicated to the presentation of a wide repertoire of chamber music performed by distinguished professional artists, both established and emerging. Our mission also includes education and engagement of the general public in chamber music as an art form, as well as collaboration with other arts organizations and community partnerships. With an annual summer festival and six concerts in the regular season, Market Square Concerts presents premieres of newly composed music as well as the monumental works from the most revered composers from the past and present.

Market Square Concerts presents its 39th season in full compliance with guidelines on social distancing, face coverings and size of gatherings. We look forward to sharing world class performances with Central PA community and return to the unique atmosphere of live musical experience missed by all of us during the past few months.

While we are still living through the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask for your understanding of the possible programming changes due to evolving international and domestic restrictions. We will do our best to keep all of you informed about any changes to the programs, artists and venues.

We deeply appreciate your support!
