This is a groupmuse

A live concert in a living room, backyard, or another intimate space. They're casual and friendly, hosted by community members.


In Building Bridges, Jacqueline Schwab, the pianist who first won the hearts of America with her haunting renditions on Ken Burns The Civil War back in 1990, celebrates the sensual spirit, lyrical, expressive melodies and pulsating rhythms of vintage habaneras, tangos, and waltzes, from Cuba, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Mexico. These dance music styles were the forerunners of samba, salsa, and other Latin styles heard today.

NOTE: It's great to bring friends, but if you don't register them beforehand, we can't guarantee space.
