Founded in 2009 by Artistic Director Jessica Gould as an alternative to the conventional concert hall, Salon/Sanctuary Concerts offers the special chance to hear pre-Romantic music in intimate venues that complement the historical context of the repertoire. Many of our projects feature innovative programming that offers the opportunity to view history and various historical issues through the prism of music. Salon/Sanctuary takes pride in developing and presenting unique interdisciplinary projects featuring luminaries from the worlds of opera, theater, and dance. Recent events in this mold include the December 2010 production of I WERE, featuring Metropolitan Opera countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo and the work of pathbreaking choreographer Karole Armitage, and the December 2011 performance of More Between Heaven and Earth, which starred internationally acclaimed film actor Matthew Modine and TONY-Award nominated actresses Melissa Errico and Kathleen Chalfant.
Concerts of music composed before 1750 performed in the kind of intimate venues for which the repertoire was meant to be performed.
