VIP Soirée Concerts

2017/18 Soirée Season is Underway!

Chamber music as it was meant to be heard

The SIXTH SEASON of Cactus Pear Soirée Specials in 2017/18 has begun! The two remaining concerts on February 11 and April 8, 2018, round out a spectacular season of intimate house concerts. There is limited seating so don't delay in purchasing our 2-concert pass for $125. That's a savings of $25 on the cost of two individual soirée tickets. You can also buy single concert tickets at the normal price of $75 if that better fits your planning.


If you’ve never heard chamber music performed as it was intended to be experienced in the “chambers” of palaces, estates and villas, then you’ve not had the pleasure of true chamber music. The intimacy of the venues, the closeness of the performing Artists, and the buffet of gourmet delights is truly memorable.


Stephanie invites her favorite musician friends to collaborate on these house concerts. All net revenues from these concerts support CPMF’s mission of music and education, so we hope you and your friends will join us for these Soirée Specials for lovely afternoons of music, wine, food and conviviality.
