Join Salastina every Tuesday for their Happy Hour: bringing you free, live musical performance, spirited conversation, and interaction with musicians and fellow music lovers.
A true expert in the field, Curtis Berak supplies musical organizations all over the West Coast with instruments required to perform certain pieces of Baroque and Renaissance music. He began his career as a painter before falling in love with harpsichord building — and ancient music more generally. Stepping into his Skid Row studio is like entering a time machine to the 16th/17th centuries. Join Salastina for a studio tour and an inside look at his construction process. Whether you have or haven’t, er, hurd of a hurdy-gurdy, you won’t want to miss this remarkably unique figure in today’s musical landscape.
