Music and Art in Boston

2016 OPEN Dates are shown below, so sign up !!
We offer Friday evening house concerts twice a month and invite metropolitan Boston musicians in the genres of classical music and jazz to apply. Our music room seats about 45 people and features a 7' Yamaha grand piano. Musicians and listeners alike enjoy the intimacy of these gatherings, which are followed with a reception featuring desserts by our in-house chefs. The admission fee is $15, with most of that going to the musicians.
We also offer local visual artists the opportunity to display and sell their work here. Generally the pieces are on display for 1 to 2 months and an opening reception is staged for the artist and show. Inquiries for this program can be directed to Daryl Bichel as well by indicating you are a Visual Artist (see form at the bottom of this page).

January 29, Fri, 7:30, Patchtax (Classical)

    Eve Boltax, viola
    Mary Joy Patchett, saxophone
patchtax is a viola and saxophone duo based in Boston and currently in their fourth season. The duo explores unconventional performance practices within the realm of classical chamber music. patchtax's first commissioning project was in the fall of 2013, where a set of six short duos by six different composers were written to be performed with a food pairing. This created a multi-sensorial experience for the audience. During the Spring of 2014 patchtax created the piece "Love" with composer David Dominique that began and ended with the staging of a ritualistic and surreal dining room scene. Our current work with dancer Elizabeth Epsen eliminates boundaries between the dancer and musicians, creating work that is both sensual and absurd.

Over the past four seasons, patchtax has performed extensively in the northeast, at Brandeis University, Brooklyn College, the Advent Library Concert Series, SpectrumNYC, ChagallPAC (performance art collaborative), the OpenSound Concert Series, Groupmuse events, the New Art Center, the Nave Gallery Series, BrickBottom Gallery, and Junk Kitchen Series. In addition to the food and music commissioning project, patchtax has had five new works written for us by Boston, New York and Chicago area composers. In January of 2015, patchtax spent a month in residency at the Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts in Saratoga, Wyoming, which was a fully funded retreat. patchtax was accepted to perform at the 2015 World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg, France.

This past summer, patchtax crowdfunded over $5000 for a northeast tour and recording project that culminated in the release of their first album. patchtax toured with dancer Elizabeth Epsen and composer/sound engineer Kevin Laba. Performances were held in Montpelier, Burlington, Montreal and Quebec City and experiences were documented through the creation of music videos. In December of 2015, patchtax organized a performance in Boston that was a culmination of the touring and recording project. Here, patchtax collaborated with public artist Daniel Sternof Beyer (technical director of ILLUMINUS Boston), and dancer Elizabeth Epsen, in a performance that experimented with the theatrics of live concert performance, interpretations of patchtax's music videos, the embodiment of musicians, and the shared physical space of musicians, dancer, and audience.

Taylor House Music Performance

“In a word - Splendid!”
Absolutely loved staying at the Taylor House. Fully restored to it's original beauty with all the modern upgrades. No doubt every detail was attended to in the design of this place. The art through out is stunning and engaging. The breakfast was exceptional (right out of the oven egg and vegetable casserole, crumb cake, fresh seasonal fruits and high quality coffee). The best part was that I slept like a baby on a very comfortable bed. Tucked away on a quiet side street and near to all, I almost forgot I was in a city. I highly recommend the Taylor House and look forward to staying there again during future visits to Boston.
