Sunday Afternoon Live at the Chazen is a monthly music concert performed in the museum's Brittingham Gallery III on the first Sunday of every month (except January). Performances begin at 12:30. The gallery seats approximately 100 people; admission is free and first-come, first-served. Please note that Gallery III and the adjacent Gallery II are closed on Sunday before the performances for setup and rehearsal.
The eleven concerts will be streamed live on the Internet. During the concert intermissions, the Chazen director will engage a visiting artist or curator in a conversation about an art display in the museum. These conversations, however, will only be accessible on the Internet.
