Music

Museum founders Anna and Charles Taft were devoted supporters of music in the community. The Taft Museum of Art continues that tradition with a variety of concerts throughout the year, including the Chamber Music Series, Tunes at the Taft, and the Fall Jazz Series. ALL concerts are free and open to the public. Join us!
