Event Description:
Join us for an evening of music honoring Clinton Gilbert Jr., '47, featuring guest artist Jane Eaglen, soprano with Yang Lin, piano.

Clinton Gilbert Jr.
The Gilbert Concert Series is made possible by the generosity of Clint Gilbert, ’47.  As a passionate advocate and lifelong lover of music, Clint established the Gilbert Concert Series fund in 1998 to enhance the study and performance of music at the Academy. The series brings artists of national and international distinction together with the students of Exeter for performances, master classes, workshops and other learning experiences focused on musical excellence.  The primary aim of the series is to inspire Exeter students and the Academy community with the appreciation for musical accomplishment and the joy such musical understanding can yield.
