A Salute to The Salons
by Nancy Gould-Aaron
This season Highlands-Cashiers Chamber Music Festival will be offering four very exciting Salons starting in late June. Salons are casual events, primarily in beautiful homes, from 5:00 to 7:00 P.M. with Festival musicians performing short programs followed by light hors d’oeuvres and drink.
On Saturday, June 29, and Sunday, June 30, William Ransom and his new bride, Yinzi Kong, will present “Music for a Wedding” at the Highlands home of Andrea and Carlton Cole and the Cashiers home of Kendra and Roger Haines.
Violinist Philippe Quint will charm and delight you again with a private recital of short showpieces on Tuesday, July 23, at the home of Judy and Louis Freeman.
On Thursday, August 1, the Chapel of the Highlands Episcopal Church of the Incarnation hosts “Music in a Sacred Space,” featuring Grammy Award-winning cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio. She will take you to Heaven with a performance of solo Bach Suites in a magical setting. Hosts for this Salon are Lana Jordan and Michael and Martha Dupuis.
All Salons are $75/person – call the HCCMF office at (828) 526-9060 or email email@example.com for tickets and information.
Feast details are close to completion; dates and hosts are available on our website at h-cmusicfestival.org.
