“Salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.” –Wikipedia

Please join us at Homer Council on the Arts for our second annual series of intimate evening performances supporting artists as they explore their creativity. The flow of the evening moves from social gathering to intimate performance and back again as the performers are intermittently drawn to the 4 x 8-foot stage.

This year’s kickoff event is presented in partnership with Hospice of Homer and the Friends of the Homer Library in conjunction with The Big Read. This year’s book, written by Roz Chast from the New Yorker, has inspired a wide range of performance ideas. Director Jessica Golden and performers Peter Sheppard, Jessica Williams, Katelyn Hawkins-Wythe, Peggy Ellen Kleinleder, Carolyn Norton and Chris Jacobson will address loss through many lenses. The performance will include excerpts from Kate Rich’s original play, Accumulation. Ranging from vocal and instrumental music, to wry, witty, and comedic acts, this evening will draw you in and get you laughing. 

Please note, there will be no alcohol sold at this event.
