Strolling by 31 East 28th Street in the heart of the Flatiron district of New York City one could easily mistake the storefront with violin display as merely a merchant shop but this is no ordinary location it is the new home of the Gil Morgenstern “Reflection Series” that combines solo and chamber music with visual art, poetry and prose from around the world. W.M.P., the Workshop for Musical Performances, is a rare opportunity to engage yourself in the cultural aspects of the city and perhaps enlarge your appreciation of the classics.
THE W.M.P. CONCERT HALL You are in for a treat. The W.M.P Concert Hall is a bijou, a jewel of a place that stands out as a luxurious professional music performance venue. You will feel like you are in a private salon of a bygone era. The elegant 19th Century French decorated hall features a brand new Bosendorfer concert grand piano, velvet curtains, and gold framed mirrors and glistening Parisian chandeliers and red silk upholstered chairs. As you settle into the luxurious surroundings you may find yourself being enchanted and delighted by the performers playing on beautiful-sounding instruments in this gorgeous hall, which is also available for rent at a musician friendly fee.
WHEN I ATTENDED A CONCERT RECENTLY TWO YOUNG AND BRILLIANT MUSICIANS-- LIV HEYM, VIOLIN and IEVA JOKUBAVICIUTE, PIANO-- PERFORMED SELECTIONS BY BEETHOVEN, BACH AND BRAHMS TO RAVE APPLAUSE AND APPRECIATION. IF YOU WISH TO ENGAGE YOUR CULTURAL SENSES IN ONE OF NEW YORK CITY’S MOST WONDERFUL HIDDEN MUSICALTREASURES, CALL 212.582.7536 FOR AN UPCOMING SCHEDULE.
