Welcome to my next Groupmuse event with a special focus on:
GREAT WOMEN COMPOSERS' String Quartets.
This is our round 2 where the wonderful cellist Mosa Tsay returns with her string quartet to perform mostly Modern and Contemporary compositions.
This will be a unique possibility to get introduced and to listen up-close to amazing but rarely performed female composers' works. This time with 2 pieces being repeated written by Caroline Shaw and Anna Clyne.
I hope you are as existed as I am and that you will be able to join us that evening.
My neighborhood restaurant Celestine (https://www.celestinebk.com) on 1 John Street will provide again some wonderful snacks and lemonade. Please bring your own alcoholic beverages.
Closest subway station is 'York Street' on the F line (it drops you off directly on Jay Street), otherwise 'High Street' on the A line. There is also a Ferry going to Dumbo; from there you can walk along the park to get to my building entrance. Street parking is best on the Vinegar Hill side.
What's the music?
We hope you'll join us and Claudia for an evening of string quartets by female composers, because it's an exciting journey to explore these rarely-performed works!
