2016 Concerts
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).

August 12, Elis Roseira and Catherine Bent (Jazz), Friday, 7:30 pm

Elis Roseira, Guitar
Catherine Bent, Cello
Once upon a time, two musicians from Europe met in a New England winter and discovered they were both under the spell of Brazilian music. From this fateful meeting a unique musical voice arose and the duo Elis & Catherine was born. Catherine Bent is a cellist from London who now lives in the United States, and Elis Roseira, born in Germany, is the duo's guitarist and singer. Both of them are versatile freelance musicians who have spent time in Rio de Janeiro at the source of choro, bossa nova and MPB (música popular brasileira). Catherine Bent played cello for Cirque du Soleil's Tour of "Quidam", has been a guest soloist multiple times on Brazil's Rádio Nacional with historic choro band Conjunto Época de Ouro, and is on the faculty of Berklee College of Music. Elis studied with Peter O'Mara and Freddie Bryant at Berklee College of Music and is a jazz singer, guitarist, and bandleader in Munich, Germany.

Elis & Catherine pay tribute to the great composers and lyricists of Brazil, with touches of North and South American folk music, European dance music and African rhythms, elegantly rendered on bowed, plucked and vocal strings. They are touring with their new CD "Um Gosto de Sol" (A Taste of the Sun). Elis & Catherine's love of dialogue between the traditional and the modern is revealed in their choice of repertoire and their unconventional arranging and composition.

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.
