This is a groupmuse
Live chamber music concerts in living rooms and other intimate spaces. They're casual and friendly, and anyone can host.
For our second Groupmuse, we are hosting the Kassia Music Collective, a DC-based contemporary chamber music ensemble. We just loved our first event, it's kind of addictive. :)
The Kassia Music Collective bring their signature mix of standards, lesser-known gems, and their own new compositions to an evening of piano trios and duos. Will include music by Mozart, Herzogenberg ( a lesser-known contemporary of Brahms), along with Sam Post (the group's pianist and San Francisco Symphony commissioned composer) and Bernard Vallandingham, the group's violinist.
We live near a Capitol BikeShare station (Lincoln Park), several bus lines (96/B2/D6), or a nice walk from Union Station or Eastern Market/Potomac Ave/RFK. If you choose to drive, there's plenty of street parking.
FYI, we do have a big, lazy Greyhound. We'll try to make sure he doesn't take up floor space during the performance. :)
For our first Groupmuse, we sent our kids downstairs with their iPads/headphones and a pizza. If you want to bring your (well-behaved) kids - and their tablet with headphones - go for it! Please make sure your kid(s) would be able to stay quiet/plugged in during the performance. We live in an old row house with very little soundproofing.
