The Parlour's Philosophy
Central to the The Parlour’s philosophy is the ideal that fine music performance can be enjoyed in a relaxed and intimate environment, often away from the conventions of the concert hall. Salons, drawing-rooms and lounges were once considered legitimate performance venues with a wealth of compositions created for them. These works gain a richer context when exhibited in their intended spaces. The Parlour focuses on the sung story-telling of Art Song and ballad, often spinning a cabaret-like narrative to bring the program together as a collection.
