Nielsen Concert Series 2016-17

The Nielsen Concert Series returns for the 2016-17 season with with evening concerts open to all and afternoon master classes and brief performances in various metro-area schools. Our mission is broader and more encompassing, with a goal of bringing the joy of serious music not just to Grand View students and the community but also to younger students who may carry that joy with them for a long time to come.

Concerts will be held in Grand View's new Student Center, in the Speed Lyceum, a space specifically designed for musical performances and named after Robert Speed, donor and long-time music professor at Grand View until his retirement in 1996.  Tickets are $20, to help defray the costs of the ensemble. (Faculty, staff and students attend free.)


Donations are appreciated.
