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.


Welcome to my next Groupmuse round, this time with the wonderful violinist Christine Wu who put together a talented quintet to perform Antonin Dvorák’s Bass Quintet in G major, Op 77 at my place.

What makes the piece so special is the unusual addition of the double bass which gives this Quintet a particular sonority, one that’s peculiarly well-suited to Dvorák’s sunny musical language.

I hope you are as existed as I am and that you will be able to join us that evening. Make sure to reserve a spot asap.

Small snacks will be served together with non-alcoholic refreshments. Please bring your own wine, beer ,or other beverages.

The doors open at 7pm and the performance starts at 7.30pm. Please try to be on time, since I can't turn off the buzzer. Just a side note: my loft is on the 5th floor of an old walk-up building.

Closest subway station is 'York Street' on the F line (it drops you off directly on Jay Street), otherwise 'High Street' on the A/C lines. The closest Ferry stop is "Dumbo"; from there you can walk along the waterfront park to my building on Jay Street.
Street parking is probably best in Vinegar Hill.

Looking forward seeing you all.
