From Webster’s Dictionary; Cadenza is:
a technically brilliant sometimes improvised solo passage toward the close of a concerto
an exceptionally brilliant part of an artistic…work
From that we take Exceptional, Brilliant and Artistic as our standard for Cadenza!

We are planning for a “soft opening” in March, most likely by invitation, to get feedback, provide some entertainment and fine tune the space. A formal, grand opening is anticipated for April, 2019.
Once open, we plan a regular schedule of at least Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening performances.
