Avant Gardner Series in Boston

Details about this new classical series are available.

Home to the longest-running museum music program in the country, under the direction of esteemed violist Scott Nickrenz, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum further expands its musical offerings this fall with the launch of Avant Gardner: a new contemporary classical series set to shake up Boston’s new music scene with an edgy slate of musical offerings from modern composers—including the world premieres of three new works.

In three dynamic programs this season, Avant Gardner serves up music from the 20th and 21st centuries on Thursday evenings as part of Gardner After Hours, the museum’s popular series of evening events. All three concerts feature performances by the Callithumpian Consort, a Boston-based new music ensemble, under the leadership of Stephen Drury.
