Anyone who’s been around the Boston Groupmuse scene long enough knows Palaver Strings. It’s a conductor-less orchestra on a mission — to bring communities together and catalyze important conversations through the shared experience of the glorious music they make.

What’s more, they love Groupmuse and we love them right back. They’ve Massivemused on both coasts, and now, in their 5th Season, they’re back in Boston with La Mappa Mundi.

In their own words:

"La Mappa Mundi draws a map of Europe, both real and imagined, through song and story. Palaver will be joined by prolific vocalists Sophie Michaux and Adam Jacob Simon for a uniquely collaborative program that travels the British Isles, Transylvania, and the Mediterranean, which have long captured the imaginations of composers and performers alike. Our program runs the gamut of baroque opera, madrigals, drinking songs, dance tunes, and a new commission by Simon, blurring the lines between “popular” music and “high art,” old and new, tradition and innovation. We will also perform lullabies with participants from the Lullaby Project, a songwriting partnership between Palaver musicians and expecting mothers.”

The program’s got Bartok, Henry Purcell, Rossini, some traditional works and a freshly commissioned one too - by Boston’s own absolutely brilliant Adam Simon.

The magic goes down in JP, tickets are $20, and we can’t wait to see you there!
