Cathedral of Trees, a.k.a. classical guitarist Matthew Anderson, works to rekindle the fusion of classical and world music begun by Egberto Gismonti and other new world composers since the 1960's. Profoundly inspired by the Amazonian people and rainforest, Gismonti used a mix of modern and primitive musical elements to convey a sense of the beauty and complexity of the natural world. Drawing from Gismonti's repertoire as well as from other composers who blur the boundaries between musical styles, Cathedral of Trees explores the natural rhythms and hypnotic sounds of Brazil and beyond through the sounds of the guitar.

Ample street parking is available. Metro #5 or #44. Our house is high off the street and it's thirty steps to the front door. Attendees will be asked to make a donation (minimum $10) all of which goes to the musician. Please bring any drinks and snacks you'd like to share.

Note: Please do not arrive early unless you have a special need and have communicated with me. Both hosts and musicians require preparation and set up time. The start time (7:30) means that is the time you should arrive, and you can expect the program will start slightly later. Thanks for your consideration.


Sonata - Murcia
Reverie - Debussy
Timeless - Abercrombie

Hello friends,
I have received an inquiry about whether the concert on Saturday is still going to happen. After checking in with Matt we would like to go ahead with the small group of people who have signed up (of course others are welcome). This will allow all of us to be relaxed together and to enjoy the soothing experience that only live music can provide - perhaps it's just what we all need. Please follow King County Public Health guidelines, which may change before Saturday. Stay home if you are sick. You are of course welcome to wash hands upon arrival, carry and use hand sanitizer, etc. FYI, here is the current advice from Groupmuse central: https://medium.com/@groupmuse/groupmuse-and-covid-19-548a2cef443
Hope to see you. Contact me if you have any additional questions.
best regards,

Hello again everyone,
After talking to Matt, we have decided to postpone this concert due to ongoing health concerns related to COVID-19 virus. Even with the small group, we cannot meet the governor's recent orders for social distancing. We will reschedule as soon as we can, so keep an eye out for a new date for this.
Stay healthy and best wishes to all,
