For the past 3 years, TML has been checking out new contemporary classical music the Salon 21
It's a chance to learn about new music, hear from the composers, and get sound bites of full performances for FREE!
There's always interesting nibblies to munch on and inexpensive wine to enjoy while having our horizons broaden - if only for an hour :)
Tonight's event focuses on :
Instruments of the Middle East - Then & Now: Much of the music we enjoy today, and many of the instruments that are used to play it, sprang from a Middle Eastern tradition that stretches back 5,000 years. Take a trip back through the millennia and hear how our music has evolved from these ancient times.
Meet and Greet: 7:00 pm
Presentation starts: 7:30 pm, with live music and lots of time for questions
Please be there no later than 6:45, and we will go up to the 3rd floor to get some seats
Otherwise, look for me upstairs
