About the series:
The history of salons span throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, bringing composers, musicians and lovers of music into an intimate setting. We are building an inclusive community based on this tradition where music professionals, amateurs and audience members are welcome. Each salon will have a theme such as mythology, war, heroism, a live performance, and a shared listening of recordings of the greats. There will also be wine for all to enjoy, with a fun discussion in the later half. Come join us and stay tuned for other exciting events that Brooklyn Opera Works has coming up.
