These meetups provide opportunities for FMMC members to perform for one another in the informal setting of private homes. Audition is not required for participation. Each group meets approximately once a month, alternating in the homes of members and via Zoom as necessary.
The FMMC Associate Pianists Group was started in the early 1950s as a rehearsal group for performances at the Tuesday Afternoon Teas. By the 1960s it developed into a performance group where pianists who were members of the FMMC could perform for each other in an informal, friendly, and supportive social atmosphere.
The group meets on the first Monday of the month, 10 months of the year, rotating among members’ homes for the performance of solo, duet, and two-piano music. (Some, but not all, homes can accommodate two-piano performance.) Members of the Associate Pianists must be FMMC members.
Each meeting has a host (the member at whose home the meeting is held) and a co-host. Since not every member’s home can easily accommodate a large group, these members may serve as co-host. Following the performances, attendees join in a very informal luncheon at which each has brought a sandwich to share, and the host and co-host provide salad, dessert, coffee, and tea.
To participate in this group, please contact the chair, Susan Roberts (email@example.com).
