75th Anniversary of Phillips Music

November 16, 2015

Audiences and artists have been coming together at the Phillips well before 1941, when Phillips Music became a series of 30+ concerts.

Throughout 2015/2016, they are commemorating their 75th season of presenting enthralling performances in the Music Room’s idyllic chamber music environment.

Among the highlights—notwithstanding a reenactment of the iconic 1955 US debut of Glenn Gould—they pay special tribute to the outstanding musicians of the US military for their role in keeping Phillips Music continually running during World War II.

The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st Street NW.
