Music has been a vital part of the Phillips’s cultural offerings since the museum opened in 1921.The flagship Sunday Concerts is the longest uninterrupted concert series in Washington, D.C., and has enriched the community since 1941, providing a platform for internationally acclaimed musicians and emerging artists at critical moments in their careers.
In partnership with embassies in Washington, the Phillips presents Leading European Composers, which introduces some of Europe’s finest talent to audiences in D.C. Each composer works directly with musicians of their choice, providing a unique dialogue between composer and performer.
Now in its second season our ensemble-in-residence, The Phillips Camerata, continues to carry the Phillips name and remarkable musical history into the concert circuit. Comprised of a flexible roster of leading instrumentalists from the D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York areas, the Camerata offers a range of performances each year under the artistic direction of Caroline Mousset.
