Music at Red Newt

Relaxing, Intimate, personal …Red Newt Bistro
… is what chamber music is meant to be.  The Red Newt Bistro is a space that is delightfully elegant, relaxing and informal in which to enjoy music, company and great food. Our intimate space, seats no more than 60 guests and is replete with an exquisite Mason & Hamlin BB grand piano.  It is the perfect setting to be wholly immersed in a chamber music experience.

There are two tracks to the music programming at Red Newt.

The Sunset Chamber Music series take place in the early evening in order to capture the beauty of the Finger Lakes sunset over Seneca Lake.  These programs draw on incredible well of musical talent in the Finger Lakes as well as from musicians across the globe.  Several performances are planned each fall and spring, and the focus is not only great music, but in making a connection with the musicians through music and  conversation in an intimate space.  Admission is by reservation and doors open early to allow guests to take a table and order from our special menu of lite fare prior to the start of the concert.  Of course a  great selection of Red Newt wines are also served.

The Lunchtime Music Series is very informal and eclectic.  Musical styles range from solo jazz piano, to modern string duos to folk.  Music starts a 1pm and is open to guests free and without reservations.  Lunch is served concurrently from our regular menu from 11am – 3pm.
