We are excited to have our first Groupmuse here in a newly created mini cultural gathering place, home to master sculptor Gregory Steinsieck. Enjoy this vocal performance surrounded by art, in an intimate space. Austin, a tenor, composer and arranger, inter alia, has both a great voice and a wonderful sense of humor. His American program includes arrangements of traditional folk songs, art songs, Appalachian tunes, spirituals and jazz pieces. For a sample go to one of his youtube videos at https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=10&v=yxG2w1s6-M4
Please note this is a fragrance free space, thanks. Kindly arrive before the music begins at 7:30 pm
