About Dark Dining Room:
Started in an empty dining room of a 2nd floor apartment 2005 with no lighting, the Dark Dining Room House Concert series has since been hosted in houses, galleries, museums, and other non-traditional venues. Lit by minimal light, listeners are encouraged to be ‘in the moment’ as much as possible. Listen and watch attentively. Keep cell phones in pockets. Support the artists. Enjoy a shared experience.
At many shows, we highlight charities and organizations that are important to us, the artists performing, and/or the host.
For 2014, we’ve been invited to schedule a series in a gorgeously grand space. More details will be available when the time is right.
