Farley’s House of Pianos is the primary venue for the Salon Piano Series concerts. These concerts began in the late 1970s when touring artists began to visit the Farley's showroom and asked to perform on the instruments. A incredible array of talented pianists have performed here, including Daniel del Pino, Paul Badura-Skoda, Alessio Bax, and Valentina Lisitsa, as well as the Varshavski-Shapiro Piano Duo. Dave McKenna and Eddie Higgins are among the jazz pianists who have appeared.
Salon Piano Series is a non-profit dedicated to offering audiences the chance to hear upcoming and well-known artists in an intensely intimate setting, much as audiences heard music throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. The setting enhances collaboration between performer and audience. An artist’s reception follows each concert and some performances include pre-concert lectures.
This spring Salon Piano Series will welcome pianist Ryan McCullough on April 26, 2014, to perform the last three Beethoven piano sonatas, and jazz pianist Dick Hyman on June 1, 2014, for a solo performance, as well as a jazz clinic the night before.
