Best Musical Party Evening
Before the crash and resulting Great Depression, the rich would entertain their friends at home with evenings of bootleg liquor, cocktails, canapés and a singer or musical ensemble. Think Duke Ellington on the patio or Gershwin in the parlor. Today in Tucson, at homes perhaps worthy of Jay Gatsby, you may enjoy the Hausmusic series. This is a special series of the Arizona Early Music Society that usually presents concerts in St. Philip's in the Hills Church. Local performers are showcased in Hausmusic concerts in private homes. Food and drinks are provided to help wile away the evening. You don't have to be on anybody's invitation list; just reserve early. Info can be found on the society's Web site.
