Regularly featured on Performance Today! and National Public Radio, the Flagler Museum Music Series brings acclaimed musicians to the finest chamber music venue in South Florida. Audience members experience chamber music as it was intended, in a gracious and intimate setting. We encourage you to visit past Music Series pages to discover some of the renowned musicians who've performed at the Flagler Museum.
The Flagler name has long been associated with great music. Henry and Mary Lily Flagler frequently hosted musical performances in Whitehall's Music Room equipped with a 1,249 pipe J.H. & C.S. Odell & Co. organ. Flagler's son, Henry Harkness Flagler, was instrumental in the organization of the New York Symphony Society, serving also as its president. Jean Flagler Matthews, founder of the Flagler Museum and Henry Flagler's granddaughter, restored Whitehall's elaborate Odell organ and brought the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Leonard Bernstein, to South Florida for a Museum benefit concert in 1969.
Music Series audience members not only enjoy beautiful chamber music but also enjoy the rare opportunity to meet the musicians during a champagne and dessert reception following each concert.
