This is a Groupmuse Massivemuse

Epic performances in unexpected spaces.


Groupmuse Superhost

Mosa Tsay. Cellist extraordinaire. The most prolific groupmuser in our history. And she's now, officially, a coast-to-coast Massivemuse impresario.

That's right. Her 8-cello bash at a chocolate factory in Brooklyn, which became the fastest selling Massivemuse ever, is crash landing on the Best Coast. Covo, a beautiful co-working space right in SoMa, is our home for the night, and 8 cellos are our entertainment and our salvation.

Mosa will be joined by the cellists of the Celloscape Collective, as they tell the tune-tales of Heitor Villa Lobos and Giovanni Sollima, and also the international premiere of Scott Rubin's new piece featuring not just 8 cellos, but also a dancer and electronics.

Drinks are available for purchase and tickets are $20.

It's hard to explain just how awesome this Massivemuse will be.

Enjoy it, SF!

Hi, the website says 730 but the app says 430... What time does this start?

Marko B., over 6 years ago

I have a ticket but would like a ticket for a friend - any way I could get another one at this point?

Krupa P., over 6 years ago

If anyone has two extra tickets, please let me know!

Julia I., over 6 years ago

is there a waitlist?

Judit Z., over 6 years ago

I have an extra ticket. I don't really want to post my email here to the whole world, so I'm not sure how to do it, but I'll get there tomorrow around 7:30 and at the entrance I can sell the ticket if anyone still needs one.

Kyle S., over 6 years ago

Music will start at regular Groupmuse time, 30-60 minutes after doors. Judit we can help you find a buyer for your extra ticket, let's do it at the door.
