A vital part of the Salon/Sanctuary experience is the rich variety of program notes that offer a wider scope into the background of our events. We hope you enjoy this selection of notes by various performer/authors below, taken from our first ten years of adventurous programming.

All notes and programs, unless otherwise specified, are © Salon/Sanctuary Concerts and the authors.
