Our Music Arts Program is an invitation to the greater community to experience the joy of music. The Music Arts Community Family Concert Series has presented classical, crossover “grassical,” opera, children’s concerts, Broadway/American Songbook, and cabaret concerts for almost 25 years. Music Arts presents a passionate love of classical and Broadway music, along with a desire to bring world class quality concerts to our community.
The Music Arts Program helps young, gifted artists in the dawn of their careers by offering them a beautiful venue in which to play. The Music Arts program also presents established artists who are gracious in accepting our invitation to play in our concert series. KI presented Yuja Wang in her first concert in the U.S., Time for Three in their first public appearance, and have presented such notable world class artists as: Gary Graffman, Pinchas Zukerman and the Zukerman Chamber Players, Gil and Orli Shaham, Jonathan Biss and Miriam Freid, Ray Chen, Haochen Zhang, Roman Robinovich, Leila Josefowicz; Meredith Arwady, Jonathan Beyer, Angela Meade, and Michael Fabiano from the Metropolitan Opera; Shai Wosner, Stefan Jackiw, and many more artists. We also partner with Opera Philadelphia.
Our concerts are appropriate for all ages. In trying to introduce young audiences to classical music, we offer free tickets to our regular concerts to students through age 23.
Volunteers are always needed to help plan, publicize, produce and run musical and related dining events at KI. If you want to sponsor a program – in honor of a relative or friend, in recognition of a special event, or in memory of a loved one – the cost is modest and the community benefit is great. If you are a business leader who wants to sponsor a program in the name of your business, with all of the attendant publicity, KI encourages you to become a program sponsor. If you are interested in program sponsorship, or are available and interested in the mitzvah of volunteer service in support of the program, please contact the Music Arts Committee by calling the Music Arts Committee Chairperson, Mrs. Ellen Bildersee, at (215) 947-5131.
