We host a seasonal art salon, Peridot Green, and love having Groupmuse musicians to help us celebrate events. We have a small garden and some animals.
For Cello and Flowerpots, we welcome cellist Mosa Tsay, accompanied by a percussionist on flowerpots.
We are super stoked to present a program that is ROOTED in the music of plants. The April showers definitely brought May flower...pots! The evening in the garden will begin with some throwBACH to when cellists didn't play with percussionists.

Thank you Laura for making your lovely place available for a wonderful evening. That was a great time!
Thanks so much Tony and Mosa for all the excellently chosen music and so knowledgeable about the music they played and the idea they share. I learned and enjoyed so much by listening.
Mosa, what a pleasure to hear you play and talk about the music with you. Hopefully I will get another chance to watch your perform.
