House Concerts Overview
Why are House Concerts so special?
House concerts present great music in an incredibly intimate venue – usually private homes. This allows the audience and artists a unique opportunity to connect in a whole different way than experienced in a larger concert setting. The music becomes very personal, and because of the limited number of audience members, there is ample time for reflection, discussion, or questions for anyone who wishes to participate.
This is the way chamber music was meant to be enjoyed… unique programs with a delightful salon-style social offering!
Admission fee includes an intimate one-hour concert with fine wine, savories and sweets, and great conversation with friends and the artists!
Please note: To protect the privacy of the homeowners – we will send out directions once the reservation has been paid. The homes will always be within a 20-minute radius from downtown Grass Valley.
