ABOUT GROUPMUSE: Each event is a private chamber music concert, akin to the salons of the old days, at the Bi Loft or at a member's home. The cast of musicians changes, the location changes, but the quality and good times remain constant!

These events are casual. Dress comfortably, bring your own drinks (although some will be provided), and prepare to get snuggly if the room is full. This is not a typical classical music experience. It's intimate and personal, which is what makes it so magical! There will be ample time before and after the performance to mingle. And there will be a 30 minute break between the sets. But please respect the musicians and listen while they play (remember: this a concert, not background party music).
IMPORTANT: In order to attend, you must reserve a spot at Groupmuse's website: Click here to RSVP: https://www.groupmuse.com/events/6079-groupmuse-downtown-4
*A $3 fee will be charged for your reservation (this is to cover Groupmuse's overhead). In addition, you will be asked to make a contribution of $10 or more in person at the event (the entire contribution goes to the musicians). So when we pass the hat, please be generous. :)
NOTE: Groupmuse is an exciting organization that only recently came to LA. We've worked out a partnership between Groupmuse and amBi, so that we are able to bring ya'll these incredible chamber music concerts in amBi homes. We're so very excited to share this remarkable series with amBi LA! :D
