Join us in celebration as we honor the legacy of our late maestro, Gerhardt Zimmermann. Proceeds from this concert will be used to establish and kick-start the Gerhardt Zimmermann Endowment Fund, which will be used to sponsor a MasterWorks concert in his honor, perpetually.

This concert will be entirely dedicated to Gerhardt’s legacy. We will perform his favorite pieces and have them conducted by friends and colleagues who are able to join us. Images from his life and testimonials will be projected on stage as we reflect on Gerhardt’s impact not only as a musician, but also as a husband, father, grandfather, and friend.

All tickets are $15. Additional donations are encouraged.
