     Over the past fifty years, Canterbury House has hosted musical performances by a wide variety of forward-thinking, innovative “prophetic voices.” In the mid 1960s and early 1970s, the Concert Series featured now-legendary performers such as Buddy Guy, Janis Joplin, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Richie Havens, Odetta, Gordon Lightfoot, and the MC5. More recently, the Series has featured regional acts, student and faculty ensembles, and internationally known artists drawing from jazz, folk, contemporary classical, electronic music, and improvised music. Artists such as Pauline Olveros, Steve Swell, Henry Grimes, Billy Bang, Oliver Lake, Faruq Z. Bey and Peter Kowald are a sampling of the high level of music featured in this series.


Unless otherwise noted all concerts begin at 8 p.m. Admission is $10 for general admission and $5 for students/seniors.
