Customer Reviews

On the 4th Friday in September I took my election-weary self to Ruggero’s for a luxurious two hours of arias, Broadway tunes, Chopin channeled by a physicist from Duke, and a Beethoven sonata performed by a duo on a Yamaha and a Schimmel. I left rejuvenated by music, sated by hors d’oeuvres, and stimulated by discussions with a welcoming and eclectic mix of other music lovers. All for free. Ruggero’s generosity to the community is its own lovely melody. - Margaret Toman
