This summer Valley of the Moon Music Festival celebrates its 5th season in Sonoma with a tribute to the extraordinary salonnieres of the 19th century, women who worked to advance the careers and reputations of composers from Bach to Stravinsky. Audiences will enjoy a musical tour of several influential salons including those of Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel in Leipzig, Sara Levy in Berlin and Winnaretta Singer, “Princesse de Polignac,” in Paris. Musicians taking part include violinists Rachel Barton Pine, Elizabeth Blumenstock and Marc Destrube; cellist Tanya Tomkins; fortepianists Jeffrey LaDeur and Eric Zivian; sopranos Nikki Einfeld and Danielle Samson; and tenor Kyle Stegall.
Two showtimes: 11am and 4pm.
