The museum will open at 5 p.m. prior to each concert. Guests may meet the evening's artists at a wine and cheese reception following each performance. For single concerts, admission is $15 for Homewood members and Johns Hopkins University affiliates, and $20 for the general public; admission for all three concerts is $40 for Homewood members and Johns Hopkins University affiliates, and $55 for the general public.
