What is the "Third Place?"

In community building, the third place is the social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home ("first place") and the workplace ("second place"). Examples of third places would be environments such as churches, cafes, clubs, public libraries, or parks.

Our goal is the create community between first-time concert goers, families, Ann Arbor townies, University of Michigan students, and many others for an evening of accessible, high quality chamber music. - Bløm Meadworks

The event is supported in part by the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance Meta Weiser EXCEL Fund.
