Artist Recital Series

Since its inception in 1878, Oberlin’s Artist Recital Series has presented more than 1,000 of the world’s acclaimed and accomplished musicians, conductors, orchestras, chamber ensembles, and composers. These artists enhance the arts and culture of Oberlin and northeast Ohio. It is one of the oldest continuing concert series in the United States.

Such stars as Room Full of Teeth, Juan Diego Flórez, Tessa Lark, Punch Brothers, Yo-Yo Ma, Terence Blanchard, and Eugene Ysaÿe have performed under the auspices of the Artist Recital Series. This growing roster is more than an impressive “Who’s Who.” It illuminates the finest of important music, spanning the late 19th century to the present.
