VIP Soirée Concerts

2018/19 Soirée Season is Underway!

Chamber music as it was meant to be heard

The SEVENTH SEASON of Cactus Pear Soirée Specials in 2018/19 has begun! The two remaining concerts on February 24 and April 14, 2019, round out a spectacular season of intimate house concerts. There is limited seating so don't delay in purchasing your 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.

Fine Wine & Food

Meet the Artists

A sumptuous buffet spread and fine wine is always looked forward to along with post-concert conversation.

One of the pleasures of these intimate gatherings is getting to know and chat with the artists.
