About Salon97

About Salon97, our name, and our history!

Founded in 2008, Salon97 is a community-based organization providing a fun and inclusive classical music experience. From events, to podcasts, to videos, to articles on the many things that make classical music relatable, Salon97 constantly puts a new spin on the old.

The TED Talk that inspired our name:

“They [the classical music profession] say three percent of the population likes classical music, if only we could move it to four percent our problems would be over. I say, how would you walk, how would you talk, how would you be, if you thought three percent of the population likes classical music? … How would you walk, how would you talk, how would you be, if you thought everyone likes classical music–they just haven’t found out about it yet?!!” -Benjamin Zander
