A Note from the Host
Kids are often left out of the concert hall, so we decided to bring the concert hall to them! Local pianist and composer Steven Luksan and soprano and Seattle Opera teaching artist Liz Frazer will be putting on a house concert of art songs for kids and parents alike! They will perform songs by Leonard Bernstein, Richard Hageman, original songs composed by Steven Luksan, and much more. This program will be in two 25-minute parts with an intermission of about 25 minutes. There will even be bubbles in the backyard for little ones who need a break from sitting – come join in the fun!
A groupmuse is a live classical music house party/concert. It’s casual, friendly, and intimate. Equal parts musical and social, it’s a way to enjoy yourself and enrich yourself. Anyone can host one, and anyone can come.
30 spots total, $10+ minimum payment to musicians, $3 reservation fee, no alcohol, not wheelchair accessible, kid-friendly event, RSVP for exact location.
