The ensemble that regularly sells out the most esteemed music halls in the world takes to the Museum’s elevated parking lot, extending our “Lot of Strings Music Festival” into the fall! Members of the world-renowned Orpheus Chamber Orchestra perform chamber masterpieces with what the New York Times described as their “edge-of-the-seat intensity”. These early evening concerts are choreographed to coincide with the sunsets that have become a signature of this new series that the New York Times as “Live Music Splendor in a Parking Lot”.

Hear these master musicians play the famed sextet from Richard Strauss’s opera, Capriccio, a staple of chamber music and a highlight from his final opera which he subtitled “A Conversation Piece for Music” before continuing the dialogue with Tchaikovsky’s virtuosically thrilling “Souvenir de Florence”.


All blocks are $50 for an 8’x8′ block which accommodates up to 2 patrons. Patrons are welcome to arrive as early as 4:30PM to set up and enjoy the evening sun.
