This is a groupmuse

A live concert in a living room, backyard, or another intimate space. They're casual and friendly, hosted by community members.


Opus Illuminate is thrilled to be partnering with Sey Coffee for a new series of concerts that will pair coffees from different regions with music that was influenced by or writen in those regions. This event will feature three works for String Quartet: the fifth string quartet by Colombian composer Blas Emelio Atehortúa; “Mu Kkubo Ery’Omusaalaba,” by Ugandan composer Justinian Tamusuza; and “Carrot Revolution” by Gabriella Smith. The concert will be accompanied by three coffee tastings from Sey‘s collection of incredible coffee, all included in the ticket price! The concert will be played by violinists Nathan Meltzer and Kevin Zhu, violist Devin Moore, and cellist Coleman Itzkoff.
