Welcome to the Internet Presence of the
Since July of 2009 the GJB has performed monthly in Hamden at Aunt Chilada's, usually on the third Sunday of the month. Our next session will be from 6 until 8 PM on August 20 with Fred Vigorito, Russ Whitman, Bill Sinclair, Art Hovey, Tom Palinko, Joel Schiavone, Tom Artin, and vocalist Cynthia Fabian. Note: Next month we'll be there on September 24, which is not the third Sunday. Known since 1993 as the best Mexican restaurant in the greater New Haven area, Aunt C's is located at 3931 Whitney Avenue, just a couple of miles north of Sleeping Giant in Hamden, beside the golf course. Seating is somewhat limited; please call 203-230-4640 to reserve a table, or just come anyway and sit at the bar. Click HERE for Jean Hadley's review of a recent session.
On Saturday, September 9 (2017) we'll return to Gordon Hall at Music Mountain in Falls Village, CT for our 24th annual concert at the string quartet capital of the universe, (Connecticut's answer to Tanglewood) with special guests Cynthia Fabian and Tom Boates.
