Table Music

Table Music Brunch Series @ National Sawdust 

Table Music at National Sawdust is a one of a kind music series created and curated by Juilliard graduate and historical oboist Lindsay McIntosh, featuring a fresh and innovative young Baroque ensemble, New Vintage Baroque. 

Inspired by Café Zimmerman, the largest and most popular Kaffeehaus in Leipzig and a center for the middle classes during the eighteenth century, National Sawdust and James Beard Award-winning chef Patrick Connolly bring you a Sunday brunch series.  

Join us for a unique and warm dining experience, where you can enjoy live historically informed performance (HIP) music in a non traditional way. Not only does this series create a laid back environment for customers to come in and listen - it also gives a much needed arena for young performers to perform and practice HIP music of the eighteenth century.

New Vintage Baroque

with special guest from Broadwood Juntion

Francis Liu, violin
Sarah Stone, violoncello
Patrick Jones, square piano


Broadwood Junction was formed after the chance discovery of an 1810 Broadwood square piano at an estate sale in Virginia. The must-have instrument of the late 18th century, square pianos paved the way for the middle class to make music at home, finding their way into the parlors of Jane Austen, Thomas Jefferson, Marie Antoinette, and Johann Christian Bach.

Broadwood Junction is dedicated to bringing the unique stories and timbres of our square piano to the public. Made up of alumni from Juilliard's Historical Performance program, the trio is passionate about exploring, experimenting, and performing repertoire from the early Classical to the Romantic era.

Dates include: 

July 31st, 2016 11-2pm

August 14th, 2016 12-3pm

August 28th, 2016 12-3pm

A note from the curator: Lindsay McIntosh  Finding new and innovative ways to perform and keep HIP alive has been my mission since attending The Juilliard School. The HIP department and faculty at Juilliard were so inspirational to so many of us young and aspiring musicians that I feel inclined to do my part to make early music approachable and sustainable in the 21st century. National Sawdust and Paola Prestini have been invaluable to helping me bridge this gap between the traditional concert space and a venue that allows us to reimagine the world of HIP.
