SCHUBERTIADA (Classical music open mic)
FREE ENTRY (compulsory drink purchase)
Rossini, Mozart or Schubert participated in regular meetings with artists and friends where they used to read and discuss literary works, dance and laugh.
At Matisse Club we would like to retrieve this lovely tradition offering everyone the most Bohemian version of the classical genre with informal and spontaneous reunions for instrumentalists, composers, singers,painters, or dancers. Everyone is invited to join!
We have made a song selection that we hope can help to fuel what it will become a great evening where everyone could feel the intimate reality of each one of the presents.
