Regularly featured on 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 renown musicians who've preformed 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 elaborate 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 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.
The Flagler Museum offers audience members the rare opportunity to meet the musicians during a champagne and dessert reception following each concert.
