Katherine Telligman
Third-time host

When I read about Groupmuse in the Hill Rag, I knew it was something we had to try. Even though our space isn't the biggest, we made room for our piano. It's in the heart of our home - and most of the time, it sits, lonely, like a piece of furniture. Let's see what the old gal can do!

We're delighted to welcome a trio performing three exciting works for clarinet, cello, and piano: Beethoven's Op. 11 "Gassenhauer" Trio, the Fantasy Trio by Robert Muczynski, and a trio by Nino Rota, who's best known for his music composed for The Godfather movies!

I'm a classically trained pianist and former piano teacher who believes music is the universal language. It's our first time hosting (my husband's take: are you sure this is something you'd like to try?), and I'm excited to do my part in making classical music more accessible to folks in an intimate setting.

I think it would be nice to have the concert and then maybe head out to a nearby restaurant/bar for dinner or drinks afterward to discuss the performance and to get to know each other.

Our kids (5 & 6 years old) might be hanging out with a sitter or plugged into their iPads upstairs during the concert as I don't think they could hang the whole time. We ask that you leave the kids at home this time. We also have a greyhound you'll have to step over as you enter.

If all goes well, we're looking to host once a quarter or so. Let's see how it goes!
