Part concert, part dinner party Tertulia presents world-class chamber music concerts in critically acclaimed restaurants in and around New York City.

Executed in a dynamic, casual format, Tertulia allows the audience to socialize over dinner and drinks while still adhering to a concert-like set of rules: there is absolutely no talking or moving around and restaurant service is suspended, during performances. In its 2014-2015 season
, Tertulia welcomed celebrated artists and ensembles including; Jennifer Johnson Cano, The Dover Quartet, harpist Bridget Kibbey, cellist Nicholas Canellakis, the Jasper String Quartet, countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, the Tesla Quartet and more. www.tertulianyc.org
