During the past three years, the Salon Trio has performed throughout the Washington metro area in a program called Salon Concerts. These concerts are presented in the homes of patrons of the arts willing to host and fund a chamber music recital. As part of these concerts, patrons and their invited guests share an up-close and personal encounter. This musical experience not only stimulates the audience’s love of music but also develops a relationship between the trio and their audience. During each concert, they share personal stories and anecdotes about the composers as well as their knowledge of the music. Following each performance is a reception hosted by the homeowner, providing an opportunity for one-on-one feedback and an informal and relaxing interaction with guests.
