Table Music at National Sawdust is a one of a kind music series created and curated by Juilliard graduate and historical oboist Lindsay McIntosh.
Inspired by Café Zimmerman, the largest and most popular Kaffeehaus in Leipzig and a center for the middle classes during the eighteenth century, National Sawdust and James Beard Award-winning chef Patrick Connolly bring you a Sunday brunch series.
Join us for a unique and warm dining experience, where you can enjoy live historically informed performance (HIP) music in a non traditional way. Not only does this series create a laid back environment for customers to come in and listen – it also gives a much needed arena for young performers to perform and practice HIP music of the eighteenth century.
Finding new and innovative ways to perform and keep HIP alive has been my mission since attending The Juilliard School. The HIP department and faculty at Juilliard were so inspirational to so many of us young and aspiring musicians that I feel inclined to do my part to make early music approachable and sustainable in the 21st century. National Sawdust and Paola Prestini have been invaluable to helping me bridge this gap between the traditional concert space and a venue that allows us to reimagine the world of HIP.
National Sawdust (NS), an unparalleled, artist-led, non-profit venue, is a place for exploration and discovery. A place where emerging and established artists can share their music with serious music fans and casual listeners alike.
