Recently I went to my second “Cocktails & Conversations” evening with Sinfonietta, a “Paris-based collaborative ensemble of highly accomplished young professional chamber and orchestral artists from all parts of the world committed to a fresh and relevant programming mission of rediscovery through excellence in ensemble performance.” That’s a fancy way of saying that this is a classical music series for people who usually find them a bit…dull. Imagine a concert series held in small venues and private homes, where you get to sit right up by the talented young musicians as they perform many of the exciting yet lesser-known works by the world’s greatest composers. Then afterwards we all get to mingle with the musicians over wine and hors d’oeuvres. It’s fun, dynamic, and a great way to see the rising stars in the classical music world. The next events are April 28-29; sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss out, the spaces fill up fast!
