The Charlotte House Series connects musicians to the local community in homes throughout Kansas City, starting with one on Charlotte Street where it was founded. While aiming to provide a unique concert experience accessible to all audiences, the Series cherishes a music tradition that has seemingly been forgotten, that of a salon style in which music was often performed in small settings such as parlors or living rooms. Popular in Europe throughout much of the 19th century, the salon was not only a setting for musicians of the time to perform but also for composers themselves to showcase new works. Pieces performed in such spaces regularly featured a high degree of virtuosity and showmanship, and the intimate nature of such venues was conducive to an elegance and nostalgia found in much of the other music of the era as well. Through attending concerts in living rooms and intimate spaces we hope you enjoy a new way of experiencing music, the old way.
We invite you to join us for an upcoming concert!
