In the attempt to beat back the wintertime blues, the Akron Art Museum has just announced that it’ll launch a new winter concert series dubbed Midwinter Blues and Other Tunes on Jan. 9. Starting Jan. 9, concerts will take place every Thursday through Feb. 13.
Each week, the museum will present an evening that features local music along with art activities, live artist demos and additional musical performances in the galleries. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the headliners take the stage at 7 p.m.
“We want to brighten everyone’s January and February with great music and unforgettable events in an incredibly cool venue," says the museum's Deputy Director and Chief Experience Officer Seema Rao in a press release. "We’re planning surprises in the galleries and in the lobby for visitors to enjoy and see the museum in a new way. The concerts are an exciting way to see these bands in a different setting. At 150 seats, it’s an intimate, unique experience for the audience and the bands.”
The schedule includes performances by the Beyonderers (Jan. 9), Cory Grinder Band (Jan. 16), Shivering Timbers (Jan. 23), Floco Torres (Jan. 30), Lemon Quartet (Feb. 6) and King Buu (Feb. 13).
Admission to the museum galleries and lobby is free. However, headlining concerts in the museum auditorium are paid admission and require tickets. Advance tickets
are $8 for members and $10 for non-members. Season passes to the four January concerts are $18 for members and $36 for non-members. Admission at the door is $9 for members and $12 for non-members.
The February concerts are free.
