During these challenging times the Salon is committed to continuing to provide support, encouragement and performance opportunities to emerging young classical musicians. For the time being, until we can be together to enjoy live music in person again, we have developed an outstanding array of virtual concerts by talented young musicians to be enjoyed by classical music lovers throughout the world. We are also planning our new 2020-2021 season, which will feature yet another selection of wonderful young musicians. These artists need our support now more than ever, and we hope you will continue to join with us and cheer them on!
We are so grateful that thanks to the support of our benefactors, members, patrons and friends, the Salon has been able to complete all of the concerts we had scheduled for our 2019-2020 Season!
We have continued our partnership with Mount Sinai Hospital and have begun to bring our artists back to the lovely Guggenheim Atrium to provide musical uplift to the doctors, staff and patients and celebrate the reduction in COVID-19 cases. Artistic Director Lora Tchekoratova and alumna Rieko Tsuchida have already performed there in early May, and we are putting together a roster of alumni and other musicians eager to perform.
We have also been working with Northwell Health to provide videos of performances by our alumni and other artists that can be streamed to patients in their hospital room.
Our Commitment to Keeping the Music Alive
Support the Salon
Now more than ever we need your support in order to continue to provide opportunities for talented young musicians to perform virtually or participate in live outreach events for the community, including concerts in tribute to our medical heroes and those most affected by the pandemic.
