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.


Looking forward to hosting our first group muse and sharing some beautiful music with local friends and neighbors.

What's the music?

Guts Baroque Baroque String Duo

Our concert begins on the streets of Venice, around 1620. The city is prosperous and happy, fed by the riches that come in via the Silk Road, or by sea. Aside from the nobility, there is a rapidly-growing class of wealthy, educated craftsmen and specialists pursuing independent careers. The music is vibrant and virtuosic, and it is everywhere. It echoes from the Basilica de San Marco, where the great Claudio Monteverdi presides over as great an orchestra as has ever existed before. It resounds from the halls of the Ducal Palace, and from the churches, and from the companies of piffari (marching bands of wind and brass instruments) parading down the streets. Even more so, it spills to the streets from the homes of amateur and aspiring musicians, who now have access to this music through publishing.

Join us to immerse yourself in this great music, from the very first sonatas ever published for violin to the beginnings of Italian music spreading and commanding great influence over composers and performers across Europe!

La Gardana, symfonia per un violino o cornetto solo by Biagio Marini (1594-1663)
