Founded in 1890, Civic Morning Musicals serves the community by providing non-commercial music in live performance to Central New York audiences. We also support musical youth, who hold the future of classical music in their hands. Our Wednesday Recital Series hosts up to 30 concerts per year, free and open to the public, at the Everson Museum, Hosmer Auditorium. Concerts begin at 12:30PM and are 45 minutes in length.
In addition to the Wednesday Recital Series, our Live! At The Everson concert series features professional musicians closely prominent to Central New York audiences. These concerts are a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Civic Morning Musicals provides recordings of our finest concerts to WCNY-FM for broadcast.
More than just concerts, Civic Morning Musicals hosts a regional Vocal Competition in November and an annual Youth Concerto Competition. The Youth Concerto Competition offers winners a chance to play with orchestra as concerto soloists. Our Junior Pro-Art provides a supportive, collegial atmosphere of master classes, recitals, and chamber music opportunities for students under college age. Civic Morning Musicals continues to focus on the future, endeavors to build new audiences by featuring local musicians, encouraging young musicians, and supporting the creation and performance of music of our time.
