Performers singing and playing instruments at a Music at Maryville Concert

The Music At Maryville concert series was founded in 1980 by Katja Georgieff, then director of Maryville University’s music program, as a way of spotlighting classical music on the Maryville campus, and continues to attract internationally renowned, classically trained musicians.

Through the years, the series, which started in Huttig Chapel and moved to the University Auditorium in 2001, has featured such talent as pianist Claude Frank, cellist Leslie Parnas and St. Louis Symphony violinist David Halen and his wife, soprano Miran Halen.
