Dear Supporter of Music at Dumbarton Oaks,

In recent years Dumbarton Oaks has worked tirelessly to retain long-time enthusiasts while reaching new friends who appreciate our passion for beauty and culture. We love providing treats for the ears in concerts and lectures, as well as sharing feasts for the eyes in the garden and museum. Our new motto of “art, nature, scholarship” reflects deeply held values.

In March we were pained at having to close our doors and gates as a result of the pandemic. More than a month later, we continue to confront challenges in the face of the unknown. In every instance, the safety of our audiences, artists, and staff members remains at the forefront of our minds.

Owing to the continued concern of COVID-19 and the uncertainty of holding public events in the coming year, Dumbarton Oaks has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020-21 Music at Dumbarton Oaks concert series. We are proud of the exciting lineup we had prepared and are striving now to reschedule the same performers for the 2021-22 season. In the meantime, we plan to find ways to offer music to you, in some form, during our regular season. Please look for email announcements and updates on our website; the music will go on!

We value your backing and encourage you to stay connected with Dumbarton Oaks. Our monthly newsletter, The Oaks News, brings readers information about online resources, upcoming exhibitions, the research of our scholars, and what goes on behind the scenes on campus. We invite you to sign up for this bulletin through our website and to follow us on your choice of social media. Dumbarton Oaks has a presence on Facebook (@doaksDC), Instagram (@dumbartonoaks), LinkedIn (Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection), and Twitter

We look forward to seeing you when we reopen!
