"Hyde Park Salon Series"
Saturday, June 22
Salons are held at a private residence in Hyde Park, near the University of Chicago campus. Email us at email@example.com for more information.
The first salon of the summer months will feature Lawrence Zbikowski, Chair of the Department of Music at the University of Chicago, on acoustic guitar, and the piano trio, Clara Christensen (piano), Irene Claude (flute) and Megan Lauterbach (cello) and - I know you've all been waiting to hear this - my debut on electric autoharp. Yep, you heard it right: Electric. Autoharp. Stay tuned for more that is awesome.
Opera Cabal curates a monthly Salon Series on the South Side of Chicago dedicated to fostering the growth of unusual contemporary performance in its beginning stages. The Salons are a forum for scholars, free thinkers and artists of any definition, both local and countrywide, giving priority to those producing uncommon work that can be difficult to program in conventional settings. Grounded in the University of Chicago tradition of open artistic inquiry, the Salons offer the opportunity to share and critique work in an intimate and rigorous workshop environment. Founded in 2006, the Salons are exclusively not-for-profit, community-based, and open to the public by invitation. Salons are generously hosted by the University of Chicago Stein Freiler Distinguished Service Professor in Physics, Sidney Nagel, and Fermilab Deputy Director, Young-Kee Kim.
