Salon Song from the past

Bush Telegraph - - ENTERTAINMENT & DINING -

The days of the Salon Song are back!

Be­fore TV, Google or You Tube, peo­ple would sing or play to each other after din­ner.

Satur­day Novem­ber 17 will be the scene of Salon Song, a genre which dates back to the 18th Cen­tury. Pa­trick Power (tenor), Giselle Cle­ments (so­prano) and Joe Chris­tensen (bass), will en­ter­tain you with wit and beauty as they recre­ate a form of en­ter­tain­ment which took place in the pri­vate homes of the up­per classes.

What bet­ter a venue than the Old Dairy Fac­tory — an ex­ten­sion of a pri­vate home in Norse­wood? While these so­cial gath­er­ings once en­gaged var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties and sub­jects such as pol­i­tics, lit­er­a­ture, sci­ence, art, phi­los­o­phy and mu­sic this par­tic­u­lar per­for­mance will in­volve the lat­ter.

With such il­lus­tri­ous and tal­ented vo­cal­ists the au­di­ence is in for a treat. Tick­ets cost $20, doors open­ing at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

Pa­trick Power will en­ter­tain with friends at the Old Dairy Fac­tory in Norse­wood on Satur­day.
