Classical Vigilante

Excelsa QuartetVigilante Coffee hasn’t just upgraded the quality of Hyattsville’s coffee — it’s also made it a little better for music.

On recent Fridays, the coffee shop and roastery in the historic downtown has hosted the Excelsa Quartet, a group of four University of Maryland students who are practicing for an upcoming music competition in Austria.

The classical music sets, which typically last from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., have proven popular with the hipsters and stay-at-home parents who frequent Vigilante on weekdays.

As a happy accident, the high ceilings of the former Model T dealership have great acoustics for live classical music.

The Hyattsville Wire loves this addition to the local entertainment scene and can’t wait to see what else Vigilante comes up with.

Editor’s Note: The Hyattsville Wire was on a brief hiatus, but we look forward to returning to a more regular publishing schedule.
