Featuring the U.S. National Tango Champions, Jazz Trumpeter, co author of Fearless after 50, a Theatrical monologue, Singer Songwriter and modern dance work "Refugee", an excerpt from the HEaRD. The Salon is modeled after the award-winning performance series in Philadelphia which itself is modeled after the 19th Century European salons. These events feature a broad spectrum of artistic performance, including all types of music, spoken word, dance and multimedia works. Many of the pieces and ensembles are experimental and created specifically to suit the intimate atmosphere. While each salon is different, they all have a powerful, inspirational impact that comes from the close connection between the artists and the audience. Previous events have sold out multiple times and earned rave reviews from both audiences and performers.
