How You Can Help

The mission of Salon Concerts is to encourage more people to enjoy chamber music by presenting a subscription concert series in homes, free concerts for the public and educating middle and high school students with weekly chamber ensemble coaching by professional musicians.

Salon Concerts, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable, non-profit corporation supported by generous donors, foundations, businesses and public funds. The programs of Salon Concerts are funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division, a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, and the generosity of ACMP (Amateur Chamber Music Players), contributions by the Dell Foundation and gifts from individuals.

Host a Concert


“Four rational people conversing” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s definition of chamber music.

Chamber music was written for a small number of instruments which could traditionally be accommodated in a palace chamber. Because of its intimate nature, chamber music has been described as the music of friends. Austin’s finest chamber musicians come together for rational conversation with their instruments making music for friends. Hosting a concert in your home is a wonderful gift to the community and your friends.

If you are interested in hosting a concert, initiate a request to learn more by emailing us at

Our ticket revenue covers only a portion of the concert production cost. Support from music lovers in the community has helped ensure that we continue producing these beautiful, intimate and affordable chamber music concerts of the highest quality, and that we continue providing chamber music coaching in public schools.
