Meetups - great way to hear music with others

See also

New York has "Meetups" for everything from yoga classes to technology worker gatherings. For those who enjoy classical music but cannot always find friends who want to go to a specific concert, meetups are an excellent way to attend with like-minded others and to hear unusual vocal and instrumental offerings.

For instance, the New York Classical Music Meetup this winter will attend a chamber music concert at the new Greenwich Village venue SubCulture; a symphony at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center; and the famed Brentano String Quartet at a Manhattan church.

As the organizers explain, joining this Meetup is wonderful opportunity "for you to attend performances, lectures, socials and more with others who share your passion.When we do go to concerts, we often get tickets at significant discounts."

Sometimes those attending a particular concert will gather first at a restaurant for dinner. Occasionally there is also a chance to socialize with the performers afterward.

In the same vein, the Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center Concertgoers Meetup regularly schedules New York Philharmonic and other concert performances, almost always at a discount. The unusual Salon Sanctuary Meetup features get-togethers at far-flung venues such as the Museum of Jewish Heritage and Fraunces Tavern.

Some Meetup groups charge a small fee to become a member. Others are open to anyone gratis. Groups at any individual concert may total just a handful or as many as 50 music lovers. Signups and payments for Meetups typically are done online.
