The Cliburn

2016 / 2017 Cliburn Concerts

Forty years ago, the Cliburn established Cliburn Concerts, a recital series designed to engage and provide beautiful concerts for the supportive Fort Worth community during the “interim years” of the Cliburn Competition. The addition of this major new program has resulted in four decades of great artists gracing Fort Worth stages under its auspices. Venues and programming have evolved at times over the years—always with the goal of creating singular, unforgettable moments between artist and audience.

This season, we’re introducing some changes to the Cliburn Concerts format, with the intention of creating the best concert experiences possible. We’ll present one blockbuster event at Bass Performance Hall, a recital with superstar violinist Hilary Hahn. For Cliburn at the Kimbell, we now announce two distinctive series: Masters, with two-night engagements by some of the greatest performers of our day; and Virtuosos, featuring phenomenal talents who, this year, are each making their Cliburn Concerts debut. And Cliburn at the Modern remains true to its mission of highlighting the works of living American composers.

Below is a listing of the full 2016–2017 season. Single tickets are on sale now.
