Welcome to Salon Piano Series
Salon Piano Series is a venue known for inspiring performances in an intensely intimate salon setting. The setting replicates that experienced by audiences throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, and enhances collaboration between performer and audience.
Salon Piano Series provides educational opportunities covering piano restoration, the opportunity to view and learn about historic pianos, and exposure to exceptional artists in a setting otherwise unavailable in South Central Wisconsin.

Goodbye dear Jess!
We were saddened to hear of the passing of Jess Anderson, whose musicianship and wisdom enriched the lives of so many. Madisonians remember Jess as the intelligent and entertaining Isthmus music critic, an accomplished amateur musician, and a generous patron of the arts. He was a frequent visitor to the Farley's House of Pianos showroom and a founding member of the Salon Piano Series board of directors. We fondly remember his enthusiasm for fine musicians and fine instruments, and smile to think of his wit.
Salon Piano Series is supported by funds from the Wisconsin American Rescue Plan project, awarded by Arts Midwest in collaboration with the Wisconsin Arts Board, and made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts from funds allocated in the American Rescue Plan Act.
