Private events

Claudia's private concerts were featured in Affairs to Remember--Top Ten Ideas for the Best Party Ever in North Shore Magazine. House concerts are a wonderful way to entertain your friends with music you love.

Or let John Kvedaras and Drew Sexton at Accenting Chicago put together for you and your friends a tour of "Paris on the Prairie", visiting French-influenced Chicago, the French Market, and a bistro show with their favorite chanteuse Claudia and her accordionist Pat Spaeth.

And our friends Ginny, Alice and Cathy put together customized group tours at My Kind of Town.
