Catacoustic’s season opener: T minus 2 days and counting. What’s going on behind the scenes?
All the musicians have arrived. For this event, it’s a big crew: twelve people will be on stage. Six locals, six visiting from out of town. Where will they stay?
Welcome to Upland Place in East Walnut Hills, the friendliest street in town. Neighbors up and down the street host musicians in their homes. The hosts get to meet fascinating artists: “You play the what, again?” The guests get a quiet, homey environment, walking distance from Annalisa’s house, where most of the rehearsals take place.
Meals are taken around Annalisa’s table. Yes, she cooks all that food for all those people, day after day, meal after meal, concert after concert. When they sit down and break bread together, the musical bonds they’ve been forging in rehearsal are cemented with fellowship.

Donors, take note: We stretch every dollar as far as it will go. By housing the musicians privately, and feeding them in Annalisa’s kitchen, we save thousands each year, which we can turn around and use to present ever finer concerts. If you would like to be more involved—if you’d like to house musicians, or provide some meals, if you’d like to sponsor one of our world-class soloists – please get in touch. We like to think of Catacoustic as a community, with everyone coming together to make what we do possible.
Tickets are available at http://catacoustic.com/tickets/ or at the door. $25, students $10.
