Our Mission

Salon Concerts is committed to serving the greater Austin community with excellence in chamber music performance and education. 

Founded in 1990 by violinist Robert Rudié, Salon Concerts’ mission is to bring to Austin superb performances of the great and varied repertoire for chamber music ensembles performed in intimate venues where the musicians and audience commingle. From a four-concert subscription series in unique Austin homes, to free lunch-hour concerts, to a nationally recognized program of chamber music education in public schools—our activities reach and educate audiences of all ages about this enduring art form. 


Perhaps the best experience in classical music: sitting as close as possible to some of the city’s best players in an opulent room with a view.
— Luke Quinton, the Austin-American Statesman
