Café Capriccio : 8pm

Café Capriccio is an acoustic group that celebrates the music and culture of European Café Society.

The café culture goes back centuries, when the great thinkers, poets, philosophers, artists and even the revolutionaries of France would gather in their local café to debate, share and plot.

Art and history were shaped at the tables of these cafés while musicians wandered from café to café or performed on a small stage inside. The music played is often free in form and lively, a 'caprice', with the occasional melancholic piece thrown in for variety.

Café Capriccio aims to reproduce the music and atmosphere enjoyed by café society with melodies and rhythms as diverse as the countries they originate from.
