08 Nov Salon: Jason Calloway
Please join me for my next Salon – a house concert on Friday, November 16th, featuring cellist Jason Calloway, and co-hosted by my friend Natalia Martinez-Kalinina.
Jason will perform several pieces of solo cello music for us; he will offer some context for each piece, and there will be space at the end of the concert for discussion and conversation. Natalia is kindly hosting us in her home at the Filling Station Lofts.
Please RSVP below if you’d like to attend, and feel free to invite a friend (just make sure they RSVP as well so we have accurate headcount).
