When & Where
MusicWeb International has praised Salon/Sanctuary Concerts programming: “It is a rare occurrence at any concert or opera when every possible aspect of the performance experience succeeds completely. I am not simply referring to the musicians, concert hall or instruments but to the gestalt: the unified whole that makes the sum greater than all of its parts.” Founded by Artistic Director Jessica Gould in 2009, Salon/Sanctuary offers an alternative to the conventional concert hall, presenting internationally recognized artists and ensembles performing pre-Romantic music in the kinds of spaces for which the repertoire was intended.
Salon/Sanctuary takes pride in presenting special interdisciplinary projects featuring luminaries from the worlds of opera, theater, and dance, and many projects feature innovative programming that offers the opportunity to view history and various historical issues through the prism of music. Recent projects in this mold include the December 2010 production of I WERE, featuring the work of Metropolitan Opera countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo and renowned choreographer Karole Armitage, and the December 2011 performance of More Between Heaven and Earth, which starred internationally acclaimed film actor Matthew Modine with TONY-Award nominees Melissa Errico and Kathleen Chalfant
