The Salon

Hosted by Patrick Soluri

Logo for The Salon

Art is often taken too seriously; the impression that it's only created in ivory towers, ages ago. These salons attempt to break that stereotype as an informal and spontaneous place where creative people can get together for a good time and share their talents with other like minded people. Since 2001 Patrick Soluri has been hosting salons inspired by those from 19th century Paris. At these salons in New York City, artists, musicians and performers have the opportunity to perform amongst friends. Performances can range from jokes and original songs to poetry and opera arias. The rest of the evening is filled with live jazz by some of the best musicians in town. In addition there are informal wine and cheese tastings as well as other culinary delights created by guests and host alike. Call it an open mike, a salon, or a damn good party, it is just an excuse to have a good time (and don't forget your dance shoes)! All performances in these podcasts are recorded live at the Salon and are the original works of the performer or in Public Domain. Each performer has given permission to be recorded and placed in these podcasts. For a complete list of performers, more recordings and photos please go to the salon homepage by clicking on the website link below. Salons are thrown 4 or 5 times a year, so look out for the next Podcast here!
