Akron’s Tuesday Musical is one of the oldest and most-respected organizations of its kind in the United States. We present the finest classical artists and ensembles that are already well established as well as young emerging artists embarking on major careers. We also present vibrant education and community engagement programs. We break down barriers to classical music for children and adults by providing opportunities to experience excellent live music — thus engaging current and new generations of music lovers and extending the benefits of music beyond a one-time concert experience.

Mission: Tuesday Musical enriches the cultural life of Northeast Ohio by supporting and promoting the art of classical music through premier concert series, an array of education and community engagement programs, an annual scholarship program, exciting programs for members and guests, and inspired musical opportunities.

"A stand-up comedian!"

That's how Pianist Fei-Fei answered a student at Akron's Miller South School when he asked if she'd ever considered a different profession.

"But, I kept laughing too much at my own jokes!"

You'll be glad that Fei-Fei kept up with the piano when you hear her at E.J. Thomas Hall this Thursday, November 21.

"The program opens with middle-period Beethoven. Usually we think of Beethoven as very serious and intense, but this piece, which is nicknamed “The Hunt,” is actually very humorous and light-hearted. You see how he sets up different surprises and jokes."

Tuesday Musical's connection with Gertrude Seiberling goes back to our beginnings 132 years ago, making Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens the perfect setting for our November Members Program last night!

Loved the performances in the majestic Music Room by young violinist Marina Ziegler from our Brahms Allegro Junior Music Club and the Madrigal Singers from Akron School for the Arts.

Plus, step back in time to the summer of 1916, when Gertrude and Frank Seiberling formally opened Stan Hywet with a Shakespearean ball for family and friends, all looking remarkably like our present-day Madrigals!

Our Story

Now in our 132nd season, Tuesday Musical is an anchor arts organization in Akron and one of the oldest and most-respected organizations of its kind in the United States. We present the world’s best classical musicians as well as vibrant education and community engagement programs.

On stage and throughout the community, Tuesday Musical is enticing and engaging generations of music lovers by bringing the world’s best music to Northeast Ohio.

The Finest Concerts

Tuesday Musical presents three concert series, all with related Education and Community Engagement activities:

1) Tuesday Musical’s MainStage series features six concerts annually by nationally and internationally acclaimed musicians. Over the years we have presented Yo Yo Ma, Vladimir Horowitz, Imani Winds, Marilyn Horne, James Galway, Renee Fleming, Itzhak Perlman, Ann Hampton Callaway, Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Bell, and many more. Most of these concerts take place at E. J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall in Akron, and feature Concert Conversations with the musicians that help to inform and engage our audiences.

2) FUZE series concerts, three each season, engage audiences in unexpectedly delightful ways, often in smaller venues throughout the community.

3) An antidote to workplace stress, our Decompression Chamber series, launched in mid-2017, brings free chamber music concerts to employees and clients at high-pressure sites throughout the city — hospitals, financial institutions, government offices, factories, social service agencies, and more.

Engaging our Community throughout NE Ohio

In tandem with our concerts, Tuesday Musical engages people of all ages and backgrounds within and beyond the concert hall by providing an array of free Education and Community Engagement Programs. More than 5,000 students and adults benefit from these programs every year.

· Every season, Tuesday Musical’s guest artists also teach, perform and inspire during multi-day visits to K-12 schools, universities, libraries, retirement communities, workplaces and more.

· Students across Northeast Ohio can attend all Tuesday Musical concerts and education programs at no cost to them, thanks to our Student Ticket Voucher Program. Parents and chaperones may purchase reduced-priced companion seats so they can sit with their children.

· Tuesday Musical covers the cost of bus transportation for schools and groups bringing more than 20 students to any concert or engagement activity.

· Brahms Allegro, Tuesday Musical’s junior music club, encourages young musicians to develop their skills, perform for their peers, and compete in regional competitions.

· Tuesday Musical’s Annual Scholarship Competition for college and university students majoring in music performance and/or music education is widely recognized as the best in Ohio. Since starting the competition in 1955, Tuesday Musical has awarded more than 550 scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,000. In 2019, 20 students won scholarships totaling more than $25,000.

· Tuesday Musical is part of the prestigious and powerful Kennedy Center Partners in Education Program. As a result, we provide free arts education workshops to help teachers increase the artistic literacy of their students.
