    Excellent concert--talented and lively musicians, welcoming and appreciative audience (according to comments by performers), and opportunity for interaction between musicians and audience at the reception afterwards.

    It was a wonderful event with some really terrific musicians. Lovely and varied. Lots of music. The musicians played for 2.5 hours total. Dancing, singing and lots of different instruments. Also, many people came.

    Hi folks for the Silk Road Concert. Harvard Yenching Building is about a 6 min walk from Harvard T Station, right outside the Yard. Walk across the Yard and come out from the Science Center exit (through the construction sites) of the Yard. Walk towards Swedenborg Church on your right at Oxford St. Yenching Institute is a wooden/brick building next to tall concrete building called William James at 2 Divinity Ave. It is Sunday so parking is OK even the signs say "Permits Only" or you do not need to feed meters (Try Oxford St., Kirkland St., Cambridge St., etc.). Meetup people get red name tags at the reception table and sit together. Musicians are all geared up and free light snacks/soft drinks afterward in the Yenching Common Room. See you there tomorrow.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
