An “Open Mic” is for popular music only, right?
Every 3rd Sunday of the month September through June, we are bringing you Open Mic Classical, a new experience in classical music, to help our community’s musicians share their music with a friendly, supportive and appreciative audience.
Are you a doctor with a classical horn habit, or an orchestra member who misses playing in small ensembles, or a choir member who would like to be heard? Are you an aspiring young student who doesn’t ever get a chance to play with a pianist, but would like to develop your performing skills? Or a composer eager to try out your newest work? Dust off your flugelhorn, oil your keys, drink your raw egg, and come share your talent in an intimate and casual atmosphere.
Classical musicians of all ages and levels are welcome.
Pianist on request is available to accompany you.
“Open Mic Classical” is brought to you by clarinetist Mónika Woods (winner of the Cape Symphony’s 2013 Soloist Competition) and amateur violist and sculptor Robert Marcus, with a great list of collaborative pianists including Lucy Banner,Elizabeth Tipton, Ana Glig, Anne Perrault, Sylvia Karkush Furash, Ben Healy.
It is held at 3:00 pm on the third Sunday of every month September through June at the Brewster Meeting House (1969 Main Street on Route 6A), home of First Parish Brewster UU Church.
