A few etiquette basics
Tertulia is a chamber music series that is designed to attract audiences committed to concert-going and revelry. The idea is simple: we bring live chamber music to different restaurants around the city, and musicians and audiences share an evening of music, food, drink and conversation.
Tertulia strives to bring balance to the concert experience. In doing so, we embrace two constants above all else: respect the musicians during performance, and allow time for audiences to enjoy dinner, drink and conversation. There are three performances separated by two extended intermissions. The format and program is designed to enhance the social and culinary experience, but at all Tertulias, the music is paramount.
At Tertulia we believe that anyone, young or old, can fall in love with classical music. Musicians’ passion for their art is contagious, which is why removing the distance between artist and audience is so critical. While beautiful concert halls will never be obsolete, there are limiting factors that make it challenging to engage new, younger listeners. It is Tertulia’s mission to bring classical music to broader audiences by diversifying the concert experience through creative presentations using non-traditional venues.
