SPRING 2022 NEWSLETTER

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.

EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH


Calling all teachers, children, and parents! The Salon de Virtuosi is excited to announce its new partnership with the Aizuri Quartet! Together, we are creating a series of educational videos for young audiences which will be accessible to music teachers and public schools across the country. The Salon is co-sponsoring three episodes, set to stream between January and May of 2021. The Aizuri Quartet has already released three episodes, available on their website, which you can access HERE. Be sure to share these jewels with young audiences, teachers, and music lovers everywhere!

NEW MUSIC COMMISSIONING OPPORTUNITIES


We are thrilled to announce the establishment of a fund for commissioning new works by emerging composers of any nationality. This fund will provide talented young composers with an opportunity to collaborate with the Salon's exceptionally gifted alumni and make a meaningful impact in their careers.


Through this initiative, The Salon de Virtuosi will commission several new works per season. Composers will be nominated by our distinguished alumni artists and selected by the Salon Board of Directors. Each commissioned work will be specially composed for the Salon de Virtuosi to be performed by Salon alumni in performances that will be scheduled in the following season.  



Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting new initiative!

We invite you to join us on this exciting musical journey by subscribing for a Salon season membership! As members, you will be invited to attend an entire season of concerts presented in 19th Century "salon" settings, where you will have the chance to hear and get to know exceptional young artists who are destined to become our future “greats.”


We rely on your generous support to fulfill the Salon’s vital mission of providing encouragement, performance opportunities, and financial assistance to our deserving young artists, which makes such a meaningful impact on the lives and careers of young artists.

SPRING


Three additional concerts are currently in the works for the Spring of 2023. In March we plan to present our Spring Song from Japan. In May, we look forward to returning once again to the Consulate General of Hungary for our Musical Soul of Hungary concert, where we will present an exciting program of Hungarian works, and the world premiere of a new composition commissioned especially by the Salon. We will end the season with our traditional Grand Finale East Meets West at the Consulate General of India in early June. The dates of our spring concerts will be announced as soon as the schedules of our diplomatic hosts are finalized.


For concerts listed on two consecutive dates, the same program will be performed on each date. All concert dates are subject to change. We plan to offer a post-concert reception following our concerts, but the precise format of our events will depend on applicable health and safety guidelines.
