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 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

Since the pandemic intervened and put a pause on live performances, we have moved all of our performances online and are thrilled that we will soon complete all of our planned performance for the 2019-2020 season. In addition, we’ve offered a number of glimpses from prior concerts as well as musical bouquets by Salon alumni to lift our spirits.
