AmiciMusic is excited to announce that we will be teaming up with Isis, West Asheville's sensational music hall/restaurant on a new series of SATURDAY CLASSCAL BRUNCHES. The relaxed atmosphere of Isis, surrounded by great food and drinks, is a perfect partner for AmiciMusic's style of informal presentations of great music that help break the barriers between performers and audience.

AmiciMusic is a chamber music organization that began in Asheville, NC founded by pianist Daniel Weiser and dedicated to performing the highest quality chamber music in intimate venues and non-traditional spaces. We are committed to breaking down barriers between performers and audiences by setting up a more relaxed and informal atmosphere at concerts and through informative talks about each composer's life and the importance of each piece before it is played.

 
About AmiciMusic   Meet Daniel Weiser, Founder and Director

AmiciMusic is a non-profit chamber music organization based in Asheville, NC and Baltimore, MD, founded by pianist and Artistic Director Daniel Weiser. It is dedicated to performing chamber music in intimate venues such as private homes and non-traditional spaces, including bars, libraries, Churches, retirement homes, and more.

AmiciMusic, meaning “music among friends,” seeks to break down barriers between performers and audience through brief discussions of each composer on their programs and by promoting a relaxed and informal atmosphere at concerts in order to encourage new concert-goers to enjoy the energy of the performances and the spirit of community and camaraderie.

AmiciMusic will also offer educational outreach into the schools, including continuing residencies and an original Assembly program written by Dr. Weiser called “Beethoven Lives...” See our educational outreach page for more information.
