Join your fellow Groupmusers for a Night Out at The Blue Gallery! This program features four cello/piano works inspired by the motifs of European fairy tales, ensuring an evening of drama and intrigue! All audience members are invited to join the post-concert wine reception amid the gallery’s enchanting Italian terrazzo tiled floors & exposed 153-year-old brickwork. Don’t miss this fun and fascinating exploration of folklore in one of Manhattan’s most beguiling venues.
A brief lecture about the program will be given by New York's most charming enigmas, Clement V. Joseph. A rhetorician and philologist, Mr. Joseph's large but elegant opinions will both frame and illuminate our journey.
