Aeronaut Brewing Co.—in partnership with WGBH and 99.5 WCRB, Classical Radio Boston—presents live music in the brewery! This month presents a truly rare opportunity to hear Josha Rifkin, one of the world’s greatest classical musicians. Join us at Aeronaut Brewing Co. for this intimate performance!
 
Joshua Rifkin’s 1970s Nonesuch recordings of the ragtime piano works of Scott Joplin almost singlehandedly spearheaded a revival of ragtime music, that quintessential sound that helped launch America into the modern era. Renowned as one of the world’s experts on the music of J.S. Bach and Josquin des Pres, Rifkin’s career as conductor, performer and professor of musicology at Boston University is practically unprecedented in the world of American music. He will perform on a 1903 Steinway grand piano (courtesy of East Cambridge Piano), will focus on the exhilarating and elegant music of Joplin and Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth, and will be paired with projections and (Hopefully! We're working on it!) live tango dancing. This performance marks the first time Rifkin has ever played this music in a public space in Greater Boston.
 
Pindrop sessions are a new, ticketed performance series taking place the first Sunday night of every month at the Aeronaut Brewing Co. tap room in Somerville. No stodginess. No competing sound. Shared silence. And sweet musical goodness. Plus, join a sweet after-party hang with the musicians!
 
Pindrop sessions are co-hosted by 99.5 WCRB’s weekday afternoon host, Chris Voss!
 
You must be 21 or older with a valid ID to attend.
 
Aeronaut Brewing Co. is located at 14 Tyler St. in Somerville. Very limited street parking is available, so it is suggested that you do not drive.
