A dancer and a concert pianist pull up to your front door and present you with a five-minute dance accompanied by Beethoven's Waldstein Concerto played for you live on the back of a pick-up truck. Live performance and neighbourhoods: Visiting several places a night, it all takes place outdoors in the place of each host’s choosing. We've found Privilege at Home as good an experience at patio-restaurants and apartment towers as in private back yards, parks and back lanes! Well-suited to communities, gatherings of all sizes and events from modest to large scale.
