We are Steuart and Michelle Pincombe. Every week we travel to a new place, meet new people, and present concerts in new places. We tell people our story – in a nutshell – of how we grew tired with our busy careers in Europe and decided to live in a 1959 travel trailer for one year, travel the country and bring classical music to non-traditional venues. We call the project Music in Familiar Spaces, because on its most basic level, that’s all it is: [classical] music in [people’s] familiar spaces.
When people ask how our tour is going, I usually answer with some combination of the following: it’s incredible, super challenging, really rewarding, totally exhausting, pretty crazy, the ultimate marriage test, a total blast! For those of you don’t know, my husband Steuart and I (and our pup Lucy) have been traveling the country in a 1959 travel trailer, presenting classical music concerts in places like cafes, breweries, homes and churches. A couple of months back Musicovation introduced our project Music in Familiar Spaces to you with this post and we’re happy to report on our progress here.
We are about two months into the Music in Familiar Spaces project and so far there have been moments of “what on earth are we doing?”, “wow, we’re really doing this!” and everything in between.
