Mary Ta
Second-time host

Hi all and thanks for checking out my second Groupmuse! My name is Mary, and I'm super excited to be hosting the Independence String Ensemble in my Glover Park living room!

In their own words, "Established by cellist Steve Kramer and composer and violinist Michael Shingo Crawford, the Independence String Ensemble is a newly founded group which presents the highest-class performances, educational outreach, and master classes. The core ensemble, consisting of award-winning internationally acclaimed artists based in the United States, generates a string quartet and its subsets, which perform all styles and genres from the early renaissance to contemporary. The musicians collaborate with a wide range of artists, including pianists and wind players, who are accredited from the nation’s finest institutions. Independence String Ensemble’s performance experiences have reached prestigious clients and the world-renowned concert halls, among them, Radio City Music Hall, Kimmel Center, MGM Grand, Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia Art Museum, Franklin Institute, Novo Nordisk A/S, Datwyler, and Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board."

I'll have a couch and a bunch of floor space for you to grab pillows/blankets (or bring your own) to cozy up and listen. Some chairs will be available for older friends (message me if you'd like to "reserve" a chair). Feel free to bring your own beverages or snacks. I look forward to hosting friends and also getting to know new Groupmusers in the community! I welcome everyone and hope you'll join me in sharing a night of good music and good vibes!

Cheers,
Mary
