In the middle of this busy month on a Wednesday night I had the pleasure of performing solo piano at the Athenaeum during dinner for vacationing pianist Ed Moore who traveled back East to New York to visit family. The venerable Athenaeum is part of California Tech campus. Sheila and I have always enjoyed performing here for weddings throughout the years.
There are a number of private clubs and organizations in the Los Angeles area that keep alive traditions such as the dinner dance, the debutante ball, family dinners and brunch. These locations and organizations steeped in tradition provide the very best in cuisine, service and entertainment for their members; it is indeed special to perform here.
Please don’t misunderstand me it is not a stuffy place; people have fun here too. Here is a video of a wedding reception dance set in the Athenaeum dining room featuring Dance Floor Surround Sound.
