VIP Soirée Concerts

2017/18 Soirée Season Begins Oct. 22. BUY TODAY!

Chamber music as it was meant to be heard

Join us for the SIXTH SEASON of Cactus Pear Soirée Specials in 2017/18! Be one of a limited number of only 80 VIP Patrons who will be entitled to attend the 3 intimate house concert parties whose dates are listed below.


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.


Normally the cost of our house concerts is $75 for these lovely afternoons of music, wine, food and conviviality. We are offering the VIP Patron Card package for $200. That’s a savings of $25 over the $75 per 3 house concert cost. 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!

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