Musica Viva


A Musica Viva Coffee Concert

Karin Schaupp and Umberto Clerici first shared a concert stage as part of the 2015 Musica Viva Festival, where the combination of guitar and cello proved a major hit. In 2018, these superb musicians bring a program of songs from across five centuries, reimagined for guitar and cello. The program takes the audience on a journey through life, from childhood to a reflection on death and all that comes in between: love, jealousy, family, illness, battles and joys.

Program to include


SCHUBERT Lob der Tranen (In Praise of Tears)

RAVEL Kaddish


$20 for Under 30’s (ID required)

Karin Schaupp is one of the most outstanding guitarists on the international scene.
