Allegro Soirées: where the concert hall meets the cocktail party. Intimate performances in unique spaces, bringing classical music to new audiences. Inspired by the salon performances of the 19th century.
Attend the inaugural event!
UPDATE: Unfortunately, this event has been POSTPONED until later this summer. I got sick and lost my voice. Please submit your email here to receive a notification once the new date has been set.
Please join me for some cabaret and Cabernet! Cabaret music has historically straddled classical and popular genres, just as I hope to do with Allegro Soirées: intimate performances where the concert hall meets the cocktail party. I hope you can make it to this inaugural event!

The program includes music in French and English by composers such as Paladilhe, Kurt Weill, Benjamin Britten, Morten Lauridsen, and Jake Heggie. Expect to be entertained and moved, and learn about the history of cabaret. The music will last about an hour, including a brief intermission. Feel free to chat with your neighbors, refresh your glass between selections, ask questions, and clap whenever you want.
A note from the artist:
My intention is to bring classical music to new audiences by way of welcoming cocktail parties. Music lovers can host Allegro Soirées in private homes and unique spaces all around the Valley, perfect for special occasions, fundraisers, or networking events. This first recital is my trial run to see how you like the format and assess the market. All proceeds will be reinvested into marketing efforts, continued coachings, and collaborative artists, with an official launch in Fall 2019. Thank you so much for your support!
