Love experiencing chamber music in a metro-adjacent English basement-style living room? Excited to be part of Groupmuse DC's early days? Then this is the show for you.


Music

This scintillating program will feature music for solo violin, solo cello (aka It's All About That Bass), and violin-cello duo (it takes two to tango!) presented by a brother-sister duo that has performed in over 35 countries.

Tasting Notes on the Musical Menu may include:
- Variations on a Theme by Georg Frideric Handel (definite notes of cacao nibs, leather, and red wine)
- Scottish Dance Suite for Two by Edward McGuire (a single malt scotch with strings attached)
- Inventions by Johann Sebastian Bach (a yogic balance of east and west, north and south, as each instrument performs an independent solo line that seemingly effortlessly balances as a counterpoint to the other)
- Select Movements from Cello Suites by Johann Sebastian (a reflection pool for meditation)
- Othmar by Maria Newman (an exploration of voices and colors, as told through a captivating fairy tale)
- Spanish Rhapsody by Jaroslav Vanacek (habanera, rumba, flamenco guitar, and pyrotechnics... 4 strings, 1 violin, no problem!)
