Come enjoy a living room concert in an artistic home. Classical guitarist Daniel Roest presents a program covering several centuries and a variety of styles and moods - all on the unamplified classical guitar. A veteran of countless public and private solo and ensemble performances, he makes quite an impression while Francesca Anderson has an enchanting way with the flute family. Whether on her main instrument, the silver flute, with its dozens of parts and pure tone, its smaller and larger versions, or a harmonizing double bore Native American wooden flute, Francesca captivates listeners with her skill and expression. Highly educated and deeply trained, she has performed with many Bay Area and Sacramento Region orchestras and ensembles, including the Folsom Lake Symphony Orchestra (Principle Flute) and the Camellia City Flute Choir. The last time Daniel played at our home, the place was packed. Reserve early!

Francesca and I had a great time with the Groupmuse format, and so did everyone there, including our hosts Anara and Dave. Francesca is Principle Flute with Folsom Lake Symphony. We got our Master of Arts in Music at the same time and have worked together for decades. We've worked up wonderful flute & guitar selections filled with variety and surprises - plus Francesca does a great demonstration with all kinds of flutes.

This was my first Groupmuse concert and I absolutely loved it. Francesca and Daniel were terrific — really professional and yet very approachable. I especially liked the flute demonstration and the variety of pieces that they played. Anara and Dave were wonderful hosts and it was great meeting some of the other people who were there. Thank you for doing this! Cheers - Linda

Thoroughly enjoyed Daniel and Francesca's beautiful guitar and flute duets. While it was obvious they were both very accomplished in their chosen instruments separately, hearing the two weave their sounds together made for a thrilling experience. These two love what they do, do it well together and by sharing experiences and knowledge of their music and instruments, make the audience feel very included. The relaxed, intimate setting provided by hosts Anara and Dave ensured a wonderful evening.
