Salon97 – Having fun with classical music

I wanted to announce that Salon97 has seen fit to appoint me as a member of its advisory board. This organization, dedicated to making classical music accessible to the other 97% of us, had its 2 year anniversary this past weekend. There’s a wonderful write up by Chloe Veltman.

Founder Cariwyl Hebert also announced quite a few fun things at the most recent event. One of these is a text fact of the week. To get this for free, text Salon97 to 41411. (As the commercials say, your text message rate still applies – hopefully you are smart and have unlimited texts, as I do.) Cariwyl has also been blogging about a composer a week. This week is Amy Beach – one of the new-to-me composers I heard at one of the very first events.  Her music is delightful.

Look out for the next event at Citizen Space on June 17th, 7pm!
