Framed as a séance, the interdisciplinary concert theatre experience will be streamed here on The Violin Channel on July 27 at 3 PM (ET)

Founded by violinist Mari Lee and researcher Simon Lee, Salon Séance creates experiences that reveal the timelessness of classical music through live performance and theatrical storytelling.

"Simon and I came up with the idea when we were in college," Mari told The Violin Channel in a recent interview. "I was at a conservatory studying music, and he was at college studying philosophy and history. We were both fascinated by the intersection between music, history, and our lives today, and we felt that this intersection helped reveal the timeless quality of classical music."

"The 'Debussy in Persona' explores the French composer’s late works and the question of whether we can separate the art from the artist. You will see musicians participate in the drama, hear works by Debussy that you may not have heard before, and feel like you’re at a séance!"
