And, Happy New Year!

I am delighted to be hosting my 3rd Groupmuse with a trio of violin, viola and cello, and with some very exciting musicians:
Filip Pogady on violin, Virginie d'Avezac on viola, and Mark Bassett on the cello.

It should be a fantastic concert of chamber music and beautiful way to start the New Year, and new decade!!

Please come join us, on Sunday, January 26th at 4pm.

We will gather together over a few snacks and wine at 4pm, with the musicians beginning around 4:45pm.
I will be baking a few sweet treats and have bubbly water available, but if you plan to drink or snack, please come with delicious either, or both, to share!!

There will be an intermission where we can re-gather for another drink and nibble, before the second half of the music.

If you haven't been to a GroupMuse before, you are in for a real treat, and these musicians are exceptional!!

Parking in the neighborhood is by permit only, however, parking is free on Sundays, on Pico and Fairfax, and there will be a handful of parking passes for first come/first served.
Best to carpool or uber, if possible!!

And also, please plan to arrive with at least $10 cash for the musicians, as we will, as always, be passing the hat and love for all to give generously!

Hope to see you all on the 26th, and very much looking forward to it!

All best,


Filip Pogady

Filip, Mark and I had a blast yesterday! Such a warm crowd!
A very special thank you to our fabulous host Laurie and to everyone who came.

Such a warm and interesting group of people in a understatedly elegant and gracious home, complete with crackling fire. Even with all this, the stars of the evening were the musicians!
Thank you Laurie for setting the perfect “stage” for my very first Groupmuse! I’ve been spoiled!

Thank you all, for coming to my 3rd GroupMuse concert, and for beginning our New Year together with that unbelievable music!! Virginie, Filip and Mark are each such extraordinary musicians, and their trio and duo ensemble playing, rocked the roof off last night!! It was a joy to host again, and, as always, the guests and groupmusers were a wonderful gathering of such lovely, interesting people, so immersed and excited by the music they were hearing!!
This was my favorite GM of all, but then, they just get better & better, and I love hosting!! I only wish the photos I took did the evening justice, but I will have to rely of others for that. Thank you all again for coming, and I look forward to seeing you sometime in the near future for my next GM!!
