Strumenti Chamber Players Performing at MVYC. Concert #2

We are planning our 2nd chamber music concert on June 2nd at the Marina Venice Yacht Club.  The program will be as exciting as the last and everyone can look forward to our series happening every month through the summer.  As before, the $20 donation will include a glass of wine or champagne and gourmet hors d'euvres.  If our "Music Lovers" have any special requests for repertoire that they would like to hear, drop us a message with the request.  The Strumenti Chamber Players are a group of the best in Los Angeles and Dale Hikawa Silverman, associate principal violist of the LA Philharmonic and Tao Ni, associate principal cellist of the La Philharmonic will be back again for the concert.

Guido Lamell will be there and Geoffrey Maingart will bring something special again.  For this concert he will be playing a fabulous violin that once belonged to Mozart and his father Leopold.  We look forward to seeing all of our new friends and fans and now with a month to prepare we hope to see a fabulous new additional crowd of music lovers.  Tell your friends and mark the date on your calendar. This is again your chance to "get up close and personal will the musicians."

For everyone that is interested in sailing, Geoff and many members of the MVYC club are welcoming sailors and newbies on Sunday sails every weekend and on other days if we have enough interested.  For sailing contact Commodore Mike Francis at [masked].  The MVYC Social Sundays from 4 - 7pm are happening every week where you can enjoy a great dinner overlooking the Marina with great friends and boating enthusiasts.  We will have program details shortly.  Thanks again to all who came to our last concert.

    I enjoyed the evening. It was wonderful. Thanks for sharing your gifts with us.

    Four highly skilled musicians, each with very individual and unique approaches to chamber music. Because of the limitations of the venue, it was impossible for them to unify their approach (see below). At one point, they got so far off they had to restart. These are all fantastic musicians, and they need a venue worthy of their talents.

      Just thought I would reply to this. Actually, I got distracted by someone in the audience who did something quite funny. We could have continued but I thought it would be better in this informal setting to just play from the beginning since we were only about 20 seconds into the piece. I wanted a good video that we were taping. I would agree with the venue, however, it is very pleasant to have the audience around us in this setting. It makes it a very personal experience for everyone. Much better for the 2nd start anyway. Call it a last minute rehearsal. Geoff Maingart

      Dear Gwenny, we expect to start closer to 8 as the club is often hard for the guests to find. If you are late you can still come in. Our concerts are informal and very fine with the best players in LA. We also take time to speak about the music before each piece. Hope you can make it. geoff

    Is there parking for the concert? If so, where?

    May 31, 2013

    • Geoffrey M.

      Parking is free at the Marina City Club where the concert is in the MVYC Yacht club. When arriving at the gate, tell the attendant you are going to the yacht club and he will direct you to the guest parking. Ask him for directions to the yacht club in the West Towere and then take the south elevator to level G3

    Sadly, I will be performing in my own concert that evening, but look forward to attending the next one. As far as special requests, I am a big fan of Shostakovich, and he wrote all those wonderful string quartets... :-)
