Restrooms are located on the second and fourth levels.
Performing and continuously growing for 26 years, the CNSO has earned an enviable reputation among both Czech and Europe’s top symphonic ensembles. Their Worcester program will feature Brahms' Violin Concerto and Beethoven's Symphony No. 7.
Originally scheduled for their Music Worcester debut in spring of 2020, Chineke! Orchestra brings a can't-miss orchestral program of Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 "New World" and Coleridge-Taylor's Violin Concerto.
Violinist Vijay Gupta, Music Worcester's Artist-In-Residence for 2023, brings a recital program to historic Mechanics Hall featuring Bach's Partita II in D Minor and Sonata III in C Major in addition to "When The Violin," the program's titular piece from composer Reena Esmail.
