Rush Hour's Summer Series continues to bring traditional chamber music to a new audience and new classical music to seasoned aficionados. The weekly summer concerts include a variety of access points to help demystify the concert experience and build common ground, allowing individual audience members to become engaged listeners, acquire a sense of ownership in the series, and gain understanding of their vital role in a live concert. Rush Hour Concerts' summer series of free classical music concerts take place every Tuesday evening at St. James through August 28.
