Andrew Lidgus Salon Series

As a professional muscian and artist Andrew Lidgus articulated his passion to share the beauty of music and art by creating the Salon Series. With the support of OnView Gallery the Salon Series began in October 2012. Lidgus welcomes guests into his home to experience an aura of musical intimacy not possible in a concert hall. His home offers a visual feast with the display of his personal artwork and the work of many other artists. During and after the concert musicians share personal inspirations and information about their music and the evening concludes after everyone enjoys a delicious meal.

Performances we have enjoyed in Season 5.
