An Upper West Side Story

The most beautiful sound I've ever heard...
A string quartet in Maria's apartment!
A Groupmuse! Say it proud, there'll be music playing!
They'll play soft, maybe almost like rain.
A Groupmuse—just come, meet a girl named Maria!

I'll feel pretty, you'll feel pretty
Bring a drink and we'll clink while they play!
And we'll pity anyone who isn't there that day.
I'll be charming, you'll be charming
Bring me please wine & cheese—and Beethoven!
And some Haydn. Don't be hiding, just come on in!

When you're a Jet you're a Jet all the way
From your first string quartet to the last song they play!
When at a groupmuse, you should please bring along
Some good snacks or some booze and $$ for the song!

There's a place for us. Somewhere, a place for us.
(near 72nd St. stop on the 1,2,3)
Song and food and too few chairs wait for us right there!
There's a time for us. Some day, a time for us.
Time together (7pm) and time for tunes (7:45pm)
Time to learn, time so soon.
This place, this time—be there.

Wonderful music in a friendly, intimate setting. What more could one asks?

Thanks all for coming, and thanks Maria for hosting! Our quartet will be performing at a few more groupmuses this fall, but if you're able to host us, please feel free to let me know. Have a great Monday!
