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.


One of the hosts has a birthday, and you're invited! Come join us for an afternoon of incredible classical music, good food and drink, and probably some birthday cake.

Bring something to share and be advised that we have 26 steps up to our front door. Parking is reasonably easy here and is free.

What's the music?

Mosa Tsay Cello

After a musician switcheroo with Christina, due to her being unexpectedly needed in north bay in the afternoon, I'm stepping in! I just noticed she had listed Beethoven 132 and Barber quartet though, and I'm unfortunately just going to be one cellist - not a quartet!

First, we'll go BACH in time to the 17th century and explore the musical architecture designed by Bach, then we'll explore musical birthday gifts...

Lutoslawski wrote Sacher Variations for Paul Sacher's 70th birthday - it was one of many pieces commissioned by the cello titan Mstislav Rostropovich.

i. Prelude
ii. Allemande
iii. Courante
