Cara is always looking for nice folks like yourselves for the following duties:

House Concerts are a unique way to have Cara come perform in your community. In the days of chamber music, 200 or 300 years ago, people would gather in their drawing rooms or salons to listen to live musicians. It was a way to get together with friends and, at the same time, to be introduced to artists and their work. It was a time when involvement in the arts was a part of everyday life. Today, most of us are accustomed to concerts where the performer is inaccessible, so the experience of a private concert in an intimate setting provides a refreshing contrast. House Concerts are unique events. The audience is close enough to see the details of the artist’s performance or hear the artist’s fingers attack the strings before they hear the sound of the notes. Not only can the guests see the performance better, they also have multiple opportunities to meet and mingle with the performer.
Why are House Concerts so great? They’re fun! They take a common social gathering to a whole new level. Since most people have never been to a private concert in someone’s home, your guests feel they are part of something special. The concert provides a unique focus to the evening with plenty of time to socialize. The intimacy and warmth of the experience enchant most people who attend.
Many hosts find that House Concerts are a tangible way in which they can support the arts in their community. Your guests don’t have to dress formally or make large contributions. They simply get to enjoy the artistry of a new talent in the gracious setting of your home.
The growing popularity of House Concerts has given independent artists opportunities to build grass-roots audiences. By hosting a House Concert and sharing this unique opportunity with those in your intimate circle, you are making a significant contribution to an artist’s career.
