Gateways Music Festival connects and supports professional classical musicians of African descent. It aims to enlighten and inspire communities—especially those underrepresented in classical music—through the power of performance. 

As part of Gateways’ “Around the Town” series, the Gateways Brass Collective will perform in various locations around the Museum.
