Welcome to the first entry in Half Notes and Half Tones , our blog about an amazing resource, Tateuchi Hall.
How many places in suburbia offer world class entertainment for free to the community? Perhaps CSMA’s best kept secret is that most performances at Tateuchi Hall are free. This 200 seat auditorium features a variety of music, theater and art events throughout the year, ranging from CSMA Merit Scholar recitals to eclectic performances brought to you by way of our partnership with Stanford Lively Arts.
Recently we had the honor of hosting the renowned ACME Quartet, which features some of New York’s most sought-after musicians. Not only were the public able to enjoy music dedicated to the outstanding performance of masterworks from the 20th and 21st centuries, but there was an opportunity to engage the artists in an intimate setting – a truly interactive experience.
This week, March 22 – March 24, is Workshop Week at CSMA. As part of this, free performances are open to the public, including “Romance of the Flute on Thursday, “How Studying Theory Makes You Musical” on Friday, ”Merit Scholar Ensembles” on Saturday, and “Peter and the Wolf”, a family concert on Sunday. Wow!
This is not in New York. It’s not in Los Angeles or San Francisco. It’s here in the heart of Mountain View. And in most cases it’s free! That’s community. For information on upcoming events: 650-917-6800 x 314 or email@example.com
