Come step into our ginormous secret artspace in San Francisco prepare yourself for a concert of wild and exotic classical and contemporary music.

In preparation for their European Tour, Pianist Ian Scarfe and Cellist Charles Akert have prepared a program that burns with white hot passion, designed to melt the hearts and faces of audiences across the globe.

This will be a thrilling evening for both classical connoisseurs AND novices who are new to the church of the cello. Scarfe and Akert will keep you amply entertained, telling you the history and context of the composers, details of the music to listen for, and stories from their lives as musicians.

What do I bring?
A pillow, your loved ones, and the tantalizing BYOB drink of your choice! Please bring at least $10 to pay the musicians at the event.

Doors at 7:30pm, music at 8pm.

Please RSVP so we can calculate the correct carpet radius :-)
