On Friday, February 9, 2024, the Carlos Museum will host an evening of musical bedtime stories in a family-friendly concert. The Pajama Concert for Families is an annual event. It’s designed for young audiences, but is perfect for music lovers of any age.
The 2024 Pajama Concert is a Chinese New Year’s Eve celebration, to usher in the Year of the Dragon.
Admission is FREE.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. at Emory’s Michael C. Carlos Museum, in Ackerman Hall, and lasts about an hour.
In keeping with the theme of the event, kids and grownups alike are invited to wear cozy pajamas and bring along a treasured teddy bear or other plush pet. Hot chocolate with marshmallows will be served before the concert.
You don’t need a ticket or reservation, but you should plan to arrive early, as seating and parking are limited.
This FREE pajama concert is presented by the Emory Chamber Music Society of Atlanta.
It features the Vega Quartet.
Free parking is available for this event, at Emory’s Oxford Road Deck and Fishburne Deck. Be sure to leave yourself time to find a spot and walk to the concert venue at the Carlos Museum. You can view Emory’s parking guide with directions to both decks online.
Be in the know…
Chamber music is instrumental music that was composed for a small number of instruments, rather than a full orchestra. It is played by a small ensemble, like a trio or a quartet — in other words, a group that could easily fit in a palace chamber.
About the Vega String Quartet
The Vega Quartet is Atlanta’s first and only professional string quartet!
This talented group has the added distinction of being Emory University’s Quartet in Residence. The residency is funded in perpetuity, through the Rebecca Katz-Doft Chamber Music Endowment — which means Emory will have a Quartet-in-Residence forever.
Most of the quartet’s Emory performances take place under the Emory Chamber Music Society of Atlanta. Since all ECMSA concerts are free, Atlanta is a city where the arts are accessible to everyone.
