In these times of stress and strain, where change is the only constant, and the very idea of "tomorrow" seems like a Hail Mary, we do have some stalwart companions. Mostly, I'm talking about chocolate, but music is good too. And of all of the musics, the musics made by the cello have long been amongst society's most beloved.

So it seems only natural, only fitting that we put on a Massivemuse in a chocolate factory. With 8 Cellos. Because if there's one thing better than 7 cellos, it's 8 cellos, and if there's one thing better than 8 cellos, it's 8 cellos in a chocolate factory.

Thank you so much to our friends at Raaka Chocolate in Red Hook for making their space and free samples of their chocolate available and thanks so much to our friends at Six Point for giving us free beer for the night!

8 cellos. Chocolate. Amazing beer. It's like we've died and gone to heaven and gotten released after 5 years on good behavior and then go to double heaven, and that's where all of the cellos and the chocolate and good free beer are.

Hi all,

Thank you to Raaka Chocolate for hosting this Massivemuse, and to Sam and Groupmuse for organizing this fantastic event!

It's a crazy idea, but just seeing what the possibilities are...I'd like to see if we can perform this program again on Saturday, May 13th - the following night - in Manhattan or Brooklyn. Does anyone possibly know of any venue that can hold 75-100 people that can generously donate their space on May 13th?

Thanks!
Cheers,
Mosa Tsay
