Salon-Style Programs (45 min)

These are shorter, versatile programs I have compiled as an alternative to the traditional full-length concert. For lack of an official term, I have titled them “salon-style”, inspired by the atmosphere of 19th century French salons, where musicians, artists, writers, philosophers and the like would gather to discuss ideas and share their works. However, these programs could be appropriate for all sorts of events.
