A living room groupmuse
A living room groupmuse
Live classical shows in community living rooms. They're casual, friendly, and intimate, and anyone can host.
Bring in Spring with a solo Spanish guitar concert with international award-winning guitar virtuoso, Tye Austin.
Doors open at 6:30, music will start around 7:00--enough time to get a drink and meet some new friends!
If this is your first Groupmuse, the concerts are casual, most seating is pillows on the floor, and feel free to BYOB. These concerts are a wonderful way to hear some fantastic classical musicians up close.
My house is very close to lots of public transportation, which I encourage you to take, as street parking can be challenging, and there's no parking in the driveway!
You're all invited to attend a solo Spanish guitar concert at my place in the Castro district of San Francisco! The program will feature Spanish and Latin guitar music with international award-winning guitar virtuoso, Tye Austin. You can find more information about Tye and his program below. Feel free to bring your own beverages and a cushion to sit on. The concert will begin and end with 30-60 minutes of drinks and networking. The minimum donation is $10 per person, and 100% of the proceeds go to the featured artist. You may pay in cash, Venmo (@tyeaustin), PayPal (paypal.me/tyeaustin), or your Stripe account. I hope to see you there!
What is a Groupmuse?
A Groupmuse is a classical music house concert and party. Originally established in Paris during the late 19th century, salon or house concerts gathered people together in intimate corridors to share art, culture, and philanthropy. Groupmuse aims to continue this historical tradition in a modern context.

The following year he was invited to perform for the former Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, on the 73rd floor of the World Tower located on the UN Plaza in NYC. Tye was commissioned to arrange and perform 16th century French renaissance music for guitar and string quartet during the second season premiere of the Netflix Original Series, "Versailles" at the US French Embassy in NYC. In May 2019, Tye moved to Shanghai, China for a performance and teaching artist residency at the iSchool of Music-Shanghai.
