About Trillium Salon Series

Trillium Salon Series invites a blurring between audience and performer to instigate connection and interaction, redefining the classical performance experience.

Unlike a traditional setting, in which a performer is set apart up on stage, with an audience looking up to the spotlight, Trillium aims to take away this idea of a stoic performer with an audience in awe, simply responding in a very dichotomous way to the performance.

The audience is as much a part of the experience as the performer, meaning concertgoers aren’t simply passively part of the experience, they take an active role and instead of a static dichotomy there’s now an energetic exchange of synergy. We want to destroy the idea that classical music is only for the elite, a high brow experience for those only in the upper crust. This is music for everyone, music that helps us all and speaks to the human condition.
