Brown Bag Lunch Series: Cliburn & Competition

A thrilling hour of suspense, surprises, nostalgia and superb artistry… with a PB&J in one hand and a glass of milk in the other! It’s the Cliburn “Remember When” brown bag series presented by the Music/Media Library and the Cliburn Archive. Bring your lunch and join us in the Screening Room at noon on the dates listed below as we view highlights of our favorite past Competitions through the documentaries of the Cliburn Foundation. It’s excellent information for the Cliburn newbie and fun nostalgia for the Cliburn veteran. See how the Competition has changed over the decades. Experience the highest highs and the lowest depths as budding artists make their mark on the classical music world. It really is all that and a bag of chips!
