The New Jewish Theatre

NEW JEWISH THEATRE’S SALON MUSIC SERIES


NJT's Salon Music presents Chamber Music Concerts in the Marvin & Harlene Wool Studio Theater.  The Mission of this series is to broaden and augment the Performing Arts Events and to focus on Outreach and Emerging Artists.  There are stand-alone concerts, as well as the summer one week Gesher Music Festival of Emerging Artists

Music in an intimate setting.  Like the Salons of the 19th Century, NJT's Salon Music recreates an aura of intimacy for this most intimate form of music.
