A Classical Williamsburg Eve Groupmuse | Williamsburg (full address given to attendees only) Wednesday, March 28 at 7:30 More info, $3 to reserve and $10+ donation to the musicans
Groupmuse — the community-building and stereotype-breaking music series — is coming to Williamsburg this week. Here’s how it works: classical music enthusiasts open up their homes, announce an event on Groupmuse’s website, and then loyal audiences look for upcoming mini-concerts in their nabes. The host for this event will welcome two violinists; if it fills up, you can always search the site for future events (or host one yourself!).

106 Green is pleased to present “Sunnyside,” a solo exhibition of new works by Karin Campbell. The exhibition will be open from March 31–April 29. Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday from 12-5. Karin Campbell’s work exudes an ecstatic painterliness: Energetic brushwork, bright colors, and wild shapes come together in joyful and rambunctious compositions.
