Welcome to the reimagined 2020-21 Season of the Cornell Concert Series.

The Cornell Concert Series is dedicated to presenting impactful, innovative programming that complies with the COVID-19 guidelines mandated by Cornell University and New York State. Until we are able to safely re-open our concert halls to you, we will be presenting our artists in a virtual format.

Our online episodes will feature artists performing and speaking about their music: offering insights into their repertoire, and discussing ways of creating, practicing, and enjoying music in a socially-distanced world.

Every episode will allow you to directly take part in guiding the conversation. The Cornell Concert Series will solicit video and written questions from the Cornell and greater Ithaca communities to be presented to the artists. Our episodes will be pre-taped, with submission deadlines advertised as the season progresses.

Each episode will premiere on CornellConcertSeries.com at 7:00pm, where it will remain viewable for 14 days. Episodes will be available for future viewing by logging in to our ticketing site, cornellconcertseries.universitytickets.com.
