[Update: February 12 Chopin Musicale canceled due to weather.]
Two events this weekend at the Music Mansion. This enchanting music venue has the added advantage of being a fallout shelter. In case . . . you know . . . Nordstrom’s steps out of line again.
Saturday, February 11, 7pm — Verdant Vibes Benefit Concert (Facebook)
You’re invited to the Verdant Vibes benefit concert, our annual fundraising show that helps us continue our mission of presenting exciting new music and multimedia performance by living artists from RI and around the world.

Sunday, February 12, 2pm — Chopin Club Musicale featuring a sonata for two violins, a sonata for piano, a string quartet version of a concerto for piano, and something called “starlight transmissions.” (Musicales will be canceled if there is a parking ban in Providence.
