For a few years running now, CIC Boston has organized an annual ArtWeek that celebrates the depth and breadth of the artistic riches of our great city. And, as I hope most of you know, Groupmuse, now almost seven years young and fully coast-to-coast in its expanse, began its life here in Boston. So it seemed only natural and right that for this year’s ArtWeek, Groupmuse made a showing. So that’s what we’re gonna do! With a big fat Massivemuse!

On Thursday, May 2, we’ll gather in CIC's BEAUTIFUL Lighthouse Space — located in the heart of downtown and possessed of absolutely stunning views, to share the evening with some of the great vocal talents around as they explore the outer reaches of what voices can do! Unbelievable vocal flips, contortions, and acrobatics -- courtesy of singers Kathryn McKellar, Sophie Michaux, Fran Rogers, and Junhan Choi, with Sally Vanderploeg on piano. They'll perform excerpts from operas by Rossini, Bellini, Verdi, and other intrepid Italian Bel canto composers.

What’s more — in the hour before the program, there will be the pre-performance revelry you’ve come to know and love at Groupmuse, but there will also be a microphone open and available for all, and the invitation stands for you to share a poem, a song, a disquisition. Whatever moves you.

Tickets are $20 and include a complimentary open bar and light snacks — we can’t wait to see you there!


To address a bit of confusion: The Open Mic starts at 5.30pm. The performance starts at 6.30pm.
