Columbus Museum frontWhile we’re on the upward swing toward longer days and shorter nights, winter still gives many of us reason to hibernate – especially on the weekends. Don’t give in. Shed those flannel jammies this Sunday for some amazing music at Columbus Museum of Art. The added benefit? It won’t cost you a dime.

Sunday at Central presents a free concert of Romantic classical music called “White Nights: Music from Above the Arctic Circle” on Sunday, January 24 at 3 p.m. in Columbus Museum of Art’s Cardinal Health Auditorium. Guests will also get free access to galleries in CMA’s permanent collection, including the new Margaret M. Walter Wing.

Guests will enjoy intimate, personalized traditional chamber music performed by internationally recognized professional musicians who have played together in various chamber music settings for nearly 20 years. The program features pianist Steven Glaser (Professor of Piano, Ohio State University), violinist Leonid Polonsky (Acting Concertmaster, Columbus Symphony) and cellist Wendy Morton (former Assistant Principal Cello, Columbus Symphony).

The trio will perform Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg’s Violin Sonata No. 2 (1867), Piano Trio No. 1 by Russian composer Anton Arensky (1894) and Sérénade mélancolique (1875) by Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

Seating is available on a first-come first-served basis, and the event is recommended for everyone over the age of nine. For more information, visit
