In Fayetteville, Arkansas, a new classical house-concert series

Posted on: April 17, 2017

“More than likely, anyone who has attended a house concert in Fayetteville over the years has probably seen musicians” including singer-songwriters and folk, punk, and metal groups, writes Dustin Bartholomew in Thursday’s (4/13) Fayetteville Flyer (Fayetteville, AR). “What’s probably less likely is that these house show attendees have seen classically trained musicians playing Mozart, Brahms, or Haydn up close and personal in someone’s living room. Unless of course, they’ve attended one of the Trillium Salon Series shows … created by local radio host Katy Henriksen and friends Glenn France and Ron Chioldi … showcasing musicians playing classical music in intimate settings … This weekend’s show will feature a showing of the 1927 German expressionist science fiction film Metropolis with a live score played by local musicians The Shadow Ensemble, made up of local composer Ryan Cockerham and students from the Northwest Arkansas Community College. The show is free to attend and open to all ages, with donations encouraged for musicians and The Artist’s Laboratory Theatre.” Henriksen hosts the classical music show “Of Note” on KUAF 91.3; she started the Salon Series after a listener asked her to launch events similar to the national Groupmuse house concerts.
