Dear Friends!

This has been a fabulous French season at Grinberg Classical Salon Series in celebration of the 350th birthday of Francois Couperin (1668-1733) and the composers in his circle. This year also marks the 5th year of the Grinberg Classical Salon Series – an intimate and enlightening series of Classical music salons in revival of the elegant European tradition of Hausmusik.

With the French season completed, I am delighted to announce my two upcoming summer salons, each one-of-a-kind program: on Sunday, July 22nd, at 5 p.m & Wednesday, July 25th, at 7 p.m., I will be joined by the magnificent mandolinist, Joyce Rasmussen Balint, for the MAGICAL MANDOLIN – a colorful collection of works for the alluring combination of mandolin and piano by Vivaldi, Bach, Handel, Hummel, Beethoven, Calace, Dvorak, Grieg, and Ravel. And, on Sunday, August 26th, at 5 p.m. & Wednesday, August 29th, at 7 p.m., don’t miss the ENCHANTING EVENING FOR FLUTE, HARP, AND PIANO, for which I will be joined by the fantastic flutist, Suzanne Buerkle, and a terrific young harpist, Jane Yoon. This will be a unique program featuring both beloved and rarely-heard works by Mendelssohn, Schubert, and Turina, culminating with Mozart’s sublime Concerto for flute, harp, and orchestra (piano).

Wishing you all a fun and restful summer, and looking forward to seeing you at these two not-to-be-missed summer salons!!

Best wishes,

Dr. Yelena Grinberg, founder and the artistic director of Grinberg Classical Salon Series
