The primary purpose of the Charles Ives Concert Series is to honor the legacy of Charles Ives and American music to the Greater Danbury Area, a community that is home to one of America’s most famous composers. The Charles  Ives Concert Series regularly features dynamic and unique artists performing Charles Ives, the music of 20th and 21st-century American composers, and music that transcends the traditional boundaries of classical music to incorporate other styles of music.

The Charles Ives Concert Series is a grant recipient of the Juilliard Project Grant and we also thank Hotel Zero Degrees Danbury, Maron Hotel and Suites and Connecticut Family Orthopedics and Orthoprompt for their generous support.
