Brewster Meeting House


Drawing from the informality of an Open Mic format we are bringing you Open Mic Classical, a new experience in classical music, to help our community’s musicians share their music with a friendly, supportive and appreciative audience.

Open Mic Classical is an opportunity for classical musicians of all ages and levels to perform before a live and sympathetic audience, and also meet other musicians. Our events are held at 3:00 on the third Sunday of each month at the First Parish UU Church in Brewster, at 1969 Main St. Performers are asked to come at 2:45, and performers needing piano accompaniment are asked to contact Monika Woods (774-353-0244) or Bob Marcus (508-945-0832) a few days earlier.

We also welcome members of the Cape Community who want to be in touch with developing – and developed – musical talent on Cape Cod. All of our Open Mic Classical events also include featured performances by seasoned players.

There is no admissions charge, but donations are accepted.

We are very excited to announce that our guest performer on Sunday, February 18th, 2018 will be pianist Jacqueline Schwab.

Although Jacqueline frequently performs her arrangements of vintage American music, for her performance at Open Mic Classical she is looking forward to sharing her “closet love” for classical music. Jacqueline’s music has been fostered by community music making in the traditional folk music and dance community, and is delighted to see this mirrored in the Brewster Open Mic Classical event! She will perform 20th-century pieces by Maurice Ravel, Ernesto Nazareth and Ernesto Lecuona.

Jacqueline Schwab has been widely admired for her distinctive performances infusing the sound tracks of Ken Burns’ documentaries, including the Grammy-winning The Civil War, Baseball, Lewis and Clark, Mark Twain, The War, The National Parks, and others.

She also has performed at the White House for President Clinton, and with Scottish singer Jean Redpath on Public Radio’s “Prairie Home Companion”, and on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman.

Jacqueline graduated from the New England Conservatory in Boston, majoring in piano improvisation. She has long played for English dancing with the Bare Necessities quartet, whose flowing, group improvisational style and nationwide performances have inspired new generations of dancers and dance musicians. She has performed solo and collaborative concerts, recorded, taught improvisation, and played for dancing in over forty US states. She is married to Rev. Edmund Robinson, minister of the UU Meeting House in Chatham; they live in Brewster.
