What we're about

The purpose of this group is to meet like-minded classical music lovers and attend performances in the company of other enthusiasts.

As formal classical music concerts most often require silence which is not conducive to meeting new people and socializing with them, we use Open Classical (http://www.openclassical.org) events as a way to meet new friends and socialize. These events allow people to socialize at the same time they experience live classical music, which helps build a community of people sharing in the art form.

We also organize outings to the DFW area Symphony Orchestras and Opera performances, as well as to concerts by organizations like the Bach Society and the many fine chamber music groups around the Metroplex.

We are diverse group of people celebrating life through music and believe classical music can be enjoyed by all.

* There is no fee to join this group. The Meetup Group membership fee of $144 per year is paid by Open Classical as a service to the community and to further Open Classical’s mission of fostering communities based on classical music.

To donate, please visit the Open Classical donation page (http://www.openclassical.org/donate).

Classical Open Mic IN PERSON - Every Tuesday 8pm

BuzzBrews Lakewood

It’s back! Live in person every Tuesday at Buzzbrews in Lakewood. Starting May 4, 2021!

We will have voluntary "I’m vaccinated" buttons, so people can judge their relative Covid risk at the event. Last week, 90% of of the 75-80 in attendance were vaccinated. We are excited we can now bring back live events with full force.

Classical Open Mic is a free and open weekly event, where professional and amateur classical musicians can play anything they desire related to classical music. From violin solos to opera arias to string quartets and horn concertos, musicians of all levels are welcomed to share their talents with the friendly and appreciative cafe audience.

A professional pianist is available to accompany you on opera arias, flute sonatas, cello concertos, you name it! They will sightread your piece, which means there are likely to be some mistakes, but it’s part of the fun of making music on the spot.

The full Buzzbrews menu is available and delicious with wonderful beer, wine, and dessert selections to enhance the jovial atmosphere of the evening.

How can I play? Everybody who plays classical music is welcome to join. Click the sign up link on the website link below to grab your slot.

Do I have to play? No! Plenty of people just come to listen and enjoy!

All skill levels are welcomed and encouraged. Musicians from the Dallas Symphony, Dallas and Ft. Worth Operas and other area orchestras perform at our weekly classical open mic event. Students in both high school, as well as, college and amateur musicians both accomplished and beginners enjoy this unique opportunity to practice and play. Our goal is to provide a fun atmosphere where all can share their talents and not be afraid to be harshly judged. Mistakes are pretty common and part of the open mic experience.

The beautiful Yamaha N1 Piano at Buzzbrews is donated by Metroplex Piano for exclusive use of our event. A huge thanks to them for being our sponsor!
