Welcome to a Different Idea . . . the lights dim to darkness, the spotlight is fixed on the performer, and the brilliance, wisdom, and passion being created on-stage is enjoyed for every nuance. It is the premium experience that Parlor Concerts promises to every seat in the room.
Parlor Concerts strives to be the exception for the touring artist whose schedule is a blur of dates, and every show seems the same. The objective is to provide an intimate environment between the artist and you that inspires shows that are memorable, if not historic. Every effort is to deliver exceptional performances that will be savored forever. . .
