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.


Come explore the warm sounds of period string quartet playing. We'll be presenting the ebullient galant quartets of Franz Xaver Richter (1709-1789), as well as some of the earliest known string quartet writing by Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725). Guest starring Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805).

Played on period instruments, gut strings, with gusto.
