Putting the Fun Back in Classical Music

Classical music is about to get its humor back. This Sunday, April 17th, the Schimmel is very excited to welcome the four ladies of Salut Salon to our stage. This quirky quartet is comprised of four established musicians at the top of their game who also happen to have quite the comic chops. Come marvel at this group’s musical mastery and comic skill as they blend classical and contemporary favorites. The stunning quartet is comprised of Angelika Bachmann (violin & vocals), Iris Siegfried (violin & vocals), Sonja Lena Schmid (cello & vocals) and Anne-Monika von Twardowski (piano & vocals).

The group has been around for decades but recently went viral in 2014 when their video titled “la dispute” hit over twenty million views on YouTube.



In their latest stage show, Carnival of the Animals and Other Fantasies, the group tackles “epic animal stories.” Audiences can expect to hear Billy May’s”Green Hornet,” Astor Piazzolla’s “Escualo” (a shark who has the pleasure of meeting John Williams’ great white brother from the famous movie) and even selections from Walt Disney’s The Jungle Book. It’s sure to be a truly entertaining evening of song and laughter.



Salut Salon;  Sunday, April 17th at 7:30pm; All seats $39; Schimmel Center at Pace University; 3 Spruce St, New York, NY 10038;(212) 346-1715; Tickets available at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/949259
