The Central Florida Composer’s Forum is proud to present their 4th annual Composer’s Salon Concert on Sunday, September 18th 2016, 7:30 pm at the Timucua white house (2000 S. Summerlin Ave. Orlando 32806). Seven local Central Florida composers: Eric Brook, Stan Cording, Paul Harlyn, Dr. Chan Ji Kim, Dr. Seunghee Lee, Sharon Omens, and Rebekah Todia, will feature original compositions including local and world premieres in a diverse array of musical stylings. Instrumentation includes, piano, violin, flute, saxophone, bassoon, bass guitar, percussion, and electronic music.

Salon concerts originated with princes and other royalty holding music concerts in their great rooms or “salons” in their palaces. This rich cultural tradition continues in modern day Orlando with benefactors Benoit Glazer and Élaine Corriveau graciously hosting the 4th Annual Composer’s Salon at their home, the Timucua white house. The concert is free and donations are welcome. You’re also encouraged to bring a bottle of wine or a snack to share. For more information, please visit cfcomposers.org.
