Join us for a night of music and poetry as Salon 21 closes out their sixth season with Immediate Song, a combination concert and poetry reading. Don Bogen’s Immediate Song is a book of poetry that ranges from the immediacy of a moment to the long view of earlier civilizations. It includes street scenes, meditations on life in times of war, elegies, songs, and more. The poet will be in attendance at the beautiful Mercantile Library to read selections from the book, which will alternate with musical interludes by mezzo-soprano Kate Tombaugh and pianist Jill Jantzen as they present settings of poems from Immediate Song by contemporary composers Steven Weimer and Ellen Harrison.




New to Salon 21? Great, welcome!


HERE'S WHAT WE DO: In short, we are petite piano concerts.


Long form - We've taken the 19th century salons, where famous musicians and composers performed in people’s living rooms, and updated this piece of history for the 21st century. Imagine an evening filled with wine, food, friends, world-class music and exciting new ideas. Salon 21 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
