    PLEASE do this again so that those of us who could not attend may have the opportunity. The comments are tantalizing and Linda and Mark, and others, paint a word picture of the sheer joy of the music and the surrounding ambiance. Obviously there are many classical music lovers who welcome a performance in this unusual venue. Being close to the musicians lends a bond that is not possible when sitting in a concert hall.

    Geoffrey, I am so glad you presented this amazing musical offering.

    What an exciting, wonderful evening! I've been to many Chamber Music events, but none of this caliber. The LA Philharmonic cellist/violist/violinist that are part of Geoffrey's Strumenti Quartet were each amazing to hear up close, and their immense talents were enhanced by their Guarnerius, Stradivarius, Deconet, and Zenetto instruments. And it was lovely to sip a glass of champagne and gaze out on the marina as we chatted with new friends, before the concert began. Thank you so much!

    Best premier not the usual logistic foulups. The performers played off each other as if a longstanding event, quite inspiring. Quartets have always been the best way to understand and learn music and performing artists, these performers did not disappoint on both counts. The venue was not up to the performers standards, a bit tired and lacking yacht club luster. Would attend with enthusiasm again

    This is a very good idea...music and dinner at the Yacht Club, especially after a day of sailing, cannot better. Sadly I shall miss this one, but hope to be with you next time. Last time I was there, dinner was delicious.
