Thanks to all who attended yesterday's (who can say crowded? hallo?!) April 10, 2010 salon. The lineup included:

"Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen"/"Songs of a Wayfarer" (Gustav Mahler)
Jonathan Green, baritone & Roger Moseley, piano

"Incisi" (Franco Donatoni, written to commemorate Boulez's 70th birthday)
Andrew Nogal, oboe

And finally, the salon has apparently become famed for the rare blend of its audience -- a perfect storm of smartypants humanities people and artistically-minded science nerds, a crowd that is otherwise not to be found at this fair University. Wanting to begin a conversation about the possibilities for fostering the art/science connection here in Hyde Park, Bill and Julie laid the following question at the feet of the salon audience: can the arts and sciences intersect?)

Bill Michel, Executive Director of the Logan Center for the Performing Arts & Julie-Marie Lemon, newly-appointed art & science tsar at the Center
a panel discussion on expanding the meeting point between art & science at the University of Chicago's Logan Performing Arts Center

As a closing note, Roger Moseley, our beloved do-it-all improvisational wiz kid, has just accepted a job at Cornell and will be leaving us this summer, along with his wife, to take up residence in Ithaca, NY. Roger will perform a 6-hand piano trio with Clara & Thomas Christensen at the May 1 salon. I'll see you there.
