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 concert host will engage a visiting artist, a curator, or Chazen staff in a conversation about an exhibition in the museum. These conversations, however, will only be accessible on the Internet.

Sunday Afternoon Live at the Chazen is funded entirely by the contributions of audience members and classical music lovers. A donation of any amount helps ensure that the SAL series will continue for another generation of music lovers.

A special thank you to Kato Perlman, whose leading gifts allow us to sustain this concert series. She is a true guardian angel with a profound dedication to the arts in our community.
