Saturdays at 3 p.m.
Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art
Monthly, October—May (excluding December)
Bancroft Family Concerts are a free chamber music series presented in the Horchow Auditorium at the Dallas Museum of Art on Saturday afternoons from October—May. Each concert features local professional performers who play in a wide range of ensembles. Repertoire runs the gamut from Baroque violin to modern percussion.
Bancroft Family Concerts began in 1984 through a partnership with the Dallas Museum of Art. The free admission and daytime timeslot of the Bancroft Family Concerts were expressly chosen to support FACP’s commitment to provide professional chamber music to those who would not traditionally be able to attend—particularly older adults and families with children. For nearly four decades, the concerts have consistently attracted full-capacity audiences. Musicians frequently include members of the Dallas and Fort Worth symphonies, the Dallas Opera orchestra, other professional ensembles, and faculty members from local universities such as Southern Methodist University and the University of North Texas.
Bancroft Concerts are on Saturday afternoons at 3 p.m. and last roughly an hour. They are completely free of charge and open to all ages.
The performances are simulcast in a nearby auditorium with overflow seating UPDATE (2/25/2019): due to technical difficulties at the DMA, a simulcast in the C3 Theater will not be available for the remaining spring 2019 concerts. Most programs are followed by CODA: a moderated post-performance dialogue with the musicians.
Bancroft Family Concerts are generously sponsored by the Bancroft Family. We are grateful to them as well as to many others who give of their time and resources to make our concerts a reality. Your contributions help us keep these concerts free for all.
