Black and white pencil drawing of a cello.

Emerald City Music reveals the wild historical development of the cello – from the Baroque period to today – in our flagship date-night experience of classical music.

The evening features myriad historical cellos, an open bar, and a “wander-around” concert setting with no stage dividing you from our vastly talented musicians.
