Salastina invites listeners to join with composers, musicians, and artists to celebrate the beauty of the past and present, and to carry it into the future with a spirit of inclusiveness. True to the spirit of chamber music, Salastina performs in intimate, comfortable venues of acoustic and aesthetic beauty. Our Eastside home is Barrett Hall at the Pasadena Conservatory. Our Westside home is the Edye Second Space at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. See https://www.salastina.org/home for Scheduled Events.

ORCHESTRA FAMILY CONNECTION: We have attended for years and it's one of the things we are eagerly looking forward to getting back to when the pandemic is over. One thing that makes Salastina concerts so unique and special is that before the performance Brian Lauritsen of the classical radio station KUSC gives an informal explanation of the piece we're about to hear. It might be about the importance of a 19th Century African-American composer or it might be asking an individual musician to play a particularly evocative part that he'd like us to listen to. The result is a wonderfully immersive and intimate experience with some musicians of the very highest calibre.
