    Spring Concert Series

    Andrew Schultze

    April 12 | 7:30pm | 6th Floor

    We are excited to announce our Spring Concert Series featuring three performances – in April, May and June!

    Our series kicks off with Andrew Schultze on Friday, April 12th.

    Andrew is a classically trained bass baritone singer and he will be accompanied by Svetlana Belsky on piano.

    This truly magical evening will feature songs from 17th century Vienna inspired by Schultze's recent Austrian concert tour with the Viennese early music ensemble Affetti Musicali. The concert will include music celebrating the 650th anniversary of the Austrian National Library, with a focus of works for and by the Habsburg Emperor Leopold I. Audience participation and the sing along of a well-known Trinklieder will make this a not-to-be-missed experience.

    Each of the concerts will be held in our popular Skyline Lounge complete with panoramic views of the city and vintage bar. Food and beverage will be available for purchase during the brief intermission. Doors open at 7:30. Tickets are $25 each, $20-member price. Act now and buy a MEGA PASS and see all three concerts for $40!
