Altadena violinist Agnes Gottschewski has been presenting weekly porch concerts for her neighbors and passers-by since the end of March. She would be happy to play for your physically distanced small backyard (or front yard) gathering. Here is what Holly B said after experiencing a concert in her back yard:
"Agnes treated our small group to a transporting patio recital. All physically distanced. The pieces she chose to play suited the atmosphere perfectly--a mini Hollywood Bowl experience. We'd planned on a 30-minute program, but we clamored for an encore, and she obliged. Having a live violin performance boosted and soothed tired spirits."
