WHERE MUSIC LOVERS INCREASE THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF SONG AND CIRCLE OF FRIENDS
Everything old is cool again! Designed to give both artists and audiences the opportunity to experience art song in a true chamber setting (think 21st century Schubertiade), our SongSalon events routinely sell out.
To fill the ongoing live performance void, while waiting for Covid restrictions to lift,
we offer the "Curated Quartets" project.
Each week showcases a new quartet of great recital artists
(soprano, mezzo/contralto, tenor, baritone/bass).
Each artist performs the same song from the vast art song repertoire.
The performances beg the question
"Is it the singer or the song?"
Thanks to the SongSalon quartet curators:
James Bassi, Patrick Dillon, Maria Fattore, Richard Fudge, Kate Hurney, and Anna Tonna
SongSalon programs present singers and pianists who have a relationship with Joy In Singing.
Artists on the SongSalons are either past winners or finalists. A sampling of past programs:
The South American Way (Upper East Side)
An afternoon of English song (Lincoln Center area)
B is for Britain: songs by Benjamin Britten and Frank Bridge (Midtown at The Coffeehouse Club)
Present memories of things past (Upper West Side)
Voci di Primavera: songs for spring (Hell's Kitchen)
To host a SongSalon event, your space must have room for 25-50 music lovers, plus room for light refreshment.
To inquire about becoming a host, please contact program director, Maria Fattore (firstname.lastname@example.org)
