Mendelssohn Massivemuse on Lake Merritt
Downtown Oakland, Oakland

- Bring your own drinks
- Kid-friendly event
The days are long, the evenings are warm. It’s that time again: For the third summer in a row, an exquisite historical mansion-museum overlooking Lake Merritt in Oakland is opening its doors for us to have a most musical bash: it's with great excitement that we announce we're heading back to the Camron-Stanford House for another afternoon Massivemuse!
The Massive is BYOB and BYOBlanket, because we'll be on the lawn. Stretch out, tune in, and bliss on some true beauty -- the sky, the lake, the architectural majesty, the sweet sounds: a symphony of senses. If you're dropping into Oakland for the day, go kayaking on the lake and check out the beer garden scene before the 'muse!
Bay Area musicians (including Mosa Tsay, Groupmuse's SF Regional Community Manager!) come together to perform a quartet program by two famous siblings who composed over 500 works total:
Felix Mendelssohn's String Quartet Op. 80, No. 6
Fanny Mendelssohn's String Quartet in E-flat Major
Everyone knows about Felix the Whiz-Kid. His older sister Fanny, however, was a musical talent on his level -- but for so many years her contributions were passed over because, well, Patriarchy. No longer! Let us sing her praises!
Tickets are $20, doors open at 2:00 p.m., with music beginning at around 2:45pm. See you there!
....String Quartet in E-flat Major
....String Quartet in F Minor, Op. 80, No. 6
