PS234 Auction A Success!
This Saturday was the Annual PS234 Auction – And it was a smashing success!

Brahms in TriBeCa
The young Johannes Brahms caused a sensation when he performed his Piano Quartet in G minor to an enthusiastic audience and critical acclaim at his 1862 Vienna debut concert.
Join us at 2 PM on Sunday, April 26th when we recreate that excitement with the accomplished pianist Peter Basquin and our Tribeca Chamber Players in a FREE performance of the Brahms G minor Piano Quartet, Opus 25, in the Great Hall at Manhattan Youth (120 Warren Street, NYC).
In keeping with our up-close and personal music-in-the-round tradition, your intrepid performers will set some tempos and work through some transitions at 2 PM - we last rehearsed a week ago – & you are welcome to hear musical sausage being made. The performance starts at about 2:30 PM.
