“I had high expectations…and they were exceeded. Thanks for all your hard work in exposing us to such incredible music and your depth of knowledge.” – Leslie L. (past salon participant)

What to expect…

The salon is an informal gathering for participants to enjoy a variety of music, new and old, from around the world. Tom provides guided listening in a casual and relaxed atmosphere, not a classroom setting. It is a sharing experience of music and conversation. Doors open at 7 p.m. for an assortment of light bites, fine wines, and gourmet coffees provided by Intelligentsia Coffee. Music begins at 7:30 p.m. After a short break at mid-point, music resumes until 9:30 p.m. Participants are invited to stay and chat until 10 p.m. The salon takes place in Tom’s home in Marina del Rey; for those who have allergies, please note he does have a cat.
