Bach cello suite
John Cage, "Child of Tree"
Caroline Shaw, "Boris Kerner"

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.

What's the music?

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.
