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 50 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 $10, with most of that going to the musicians.
Although currently in hiatus, 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).
