Welcome to the 2022–23 season of the Cornell Concert Series!

Welcome back to Bailey Hall! The 2022–23 season will be a banner year, celebrating the range and depth of musical traditions from around the world. We feature gems from the United States of America, from gutsy Southern zydeco to genre-busting Snarky Puppy. The Rochester Philharmonic again appears for a beautiful Mother’s Day matinee performance. We also feature the height of chamber music from Europe: the Scottish Chamber Orchestra with violin soloist Nicola Benedetti; Italy’s Quartetto di Cremona, and the Smetana Trio from the Czech Republic. Finally, Mali-based Amadou & Mariam bring an Afro-electric beat that will get you on your feet!

Cornell Concert Series’ artists are united by their passion for what they do, bringing a range of the world’s best musics to you.
