So yesterday we had a bad experience playing at North Station that it was kind of a let down, it didn’t feel good to be ignored by people passing by given that so far we have had some sort of a perfect record in getting people’s attention… we got spoiled…
So as we wanted to go back on our feet we looked for shelter again at one of our very successful spots in the past: Harvard Square
Playing here is so rewarding, people always pays attention, plus, we got one of the best compliments we have gotten so far: “you guys are so brave! thank you for bringing light to this station with your music…”
Not everything is good and dandy, though.
One problem that I have detected is that the business card/invitation strategy is not quite working out a lot, people don’t make an effort to read so I really need to re structure the way I present them to the audience
After that we moved on to Copley Station which has a space with really nice acoustics and on the plus side, here the cards/invitation strategy took an interesting turn because we had many people taking one with them. Who knows, maybe they could eventually come up to the final concert.
Still have to work on a more attractive strategy, though
I’m hopeful for what’s to come as we approach the end of this journey
Again, please remember that if you are in the Boston area on July 2nd, come at 7:30 pm to Pickman Hall at the Longy School of Music of Bard College to get some good dose of Bach
Also, if you can’t come, catch our performance through livestream at http://www.longy.edu/livestream
Thanks for reading again and have a very good night
