Poets & Composers Salon - upcoming - FRIDAY, JULY 25th! @ 8PM

"The salon was an Italian invention of the 16th century which flourished in France throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. The salon continued to flourish in Italy throughout the 19th century. In 16th-century Italy, some scintillating circles formed in the smaller courts which resembled salons, often galvanized by the presence of a beautiful and educated patroness…one of the important features of the salon was the gathering and exchanging of ideas.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salon_(gathering) 

“A rent party (sometimes called a house party) is a social occasion where tenants hire a musician or band to play and pass the hat to raise money to pay their rent, originating in Harlem during the 1920s. The rent party played a major role in the development of jazz and blues music." Lots of talented folks - such as poet Langston Hughes and pianist Fats Waller - emerged from these rent parties. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rent_party 

Today’s creative artists - undeterred by negative things like clubs closing or not paying – have returned to the brilliant concept of hosting high-caliber artistic events in private residences. And thus “Poets & Composers Salons” were born. COPUS Multimedia and Phoenix Rising Music continue to present the best indie talent in the Bay Area at this wildly successful monthly concert series. For pictures of previous Salons, visithttp://www.facebook.com/copus.multimedia

Said one happy attendee: "An absolutely wondrous & transcendent evening. Thanks to each performer for their soulful work and to the hosts for making this possible!" ~Ron Wolf 

The next “Poets & Composers Salon” is scheduled for FRIDAY, JULY 25th. The event will include poets Kayla Sussell and Richard Lorangerr. Kayla is a retired copy editor and lively octogenarian poet of jazz who reveals in her poetry some of her experiences with many jazz illuminaries. Richard is the author of Poems for Teeth, The Orange Book, and eight chapbooks. Vibraphonist Dan Neville will bring his jazzy vibes to the mix, MC Ne will be our hostess with the mostest, and there will be new material presented by award-winning ambient ensemble Phoenix Rising and always fresh COPUS. 

There will be some scheduled and impromptu collaborations including one of Kayla Sussell’s poems about the jazz scene in New York during the Beat Era interwoven with the haunting flute by Monica Williams. COPUS will be premiering a wonderful “COPUS-ized” version of the hit song "Ain't No Sunshine" by Bill Withers… and lots more fun surprises!

Please join us for an evening of artistry, camaraderie, intelligent conversation, food, drink, and fun!

*RSVP (up to 24 hours before the event) for the exact address in the 'deep Sunset' of San Francisco.

$10-15 suggested donation to pay artists.

Thank you!
