The Queens Symphony Orchestra together with Councilman Eric Ulrich is pleased to present the Southern Queens Salon Concert Series. 

‚ÄčThese concerts will reach hundreds of area residents, particularly immigrants with informative and inspiring concerts that these patrons may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend as well as instill a love of classical and orchestral music within members of the community, both young and old. 

As with all other QSO concerts, the series will be free of charge to all attendees. The series will consist of nine small-scale concerts. Each concert will employ up to 10 QSO musicians and focus on a theme which was carefully chosen by the QSO administration as well as Councilman Ulrich. The salons will not only be exhibitions of carefully chosen classical pieces, but will also feature interactive talks regarding the pieces played and their composers. The concerts will be held on select Wednesday and Saturday evenings beginning at 7pm with the first concert to be held on February  and the last concert of the season to be held on June . These concerts will allow area residents the opportunity to not only experience the music of their own culture, but the music of the cultures of those that live around them. Each concert is designed to be an international salon wherein people can not only experience music but have an opportunity to discuss it and learn more about it than they can during any other concert experience. 

Please see below for the dates of the 2017 Salon Series. All concerts are free but reservations are required. Please click the button below to make your reservations and visit the "Calendar of Events" page to view all upcoming QSO events.
