Hey you!

Wow, it's been a long time since I've hosted a groupmuse. Fortunately, I recently moved into the PERFECT spot to host :) My new place in North Oakland has a big, beautiful backyard, complete with 7 different fruiting trees, a small deck/stage, and plenty of room for safe outdoor gatherings.

We'll hear Friction Quartet, one of the Bay area's premiere string quartets, perform a diverse program just before the sun goes down! Please arrive at 4:30pm so we can start the show before 5 :)

Please bring a picnic blanket to sit on with your party, and any drinks or snacks you'd like to enjoy! If you have any accessibility needs, please leave me a note on your RSVP, and I'll be happy to accommodate with chairs, extra blankets, etc.
