    I am looking forward to meeting all of you at the Antonio Pompa-Baldi concert tonight. I attended his master class last night and I am really excited to hear him play. As a member of the American Liszt Society I will be working at this concert and so I am unable to arrange a meetup before the concert. I will however be able to reserve a pew in Pierce Memorial Chapel for the people who have RSVP'd for this meetup so that we can all sit together. I will mark it as being reserved for the Chicago Classical Music Events Meetup. It will be on the left-hand side somewhat near the front. I will be selling tickets at the front table and will wear a name tag. Please introduce yourself.

    See you tonight!

      Hi Sara, I will be assisting with the concert since I am a member of the American Liszt Society. I will be reserving a block of seats for everyone who has RSVP'd to attend the concert so that we can all sit together. I will let you know soon regarding meeting before-hand.

    If you go to a community college and have an id can you get the student price?

    • Linda B.

      Hi Trisha, Yes, I checked and a community college ID would qualify you for the student rate.

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.
