About Us

The concept behind Artful Song was conceived at a Fall 2015 Career Day at the Chicago College of Performing Arts, where Margaret, Leigh, and Natalie earned their Master of Music degrees. Upon realizing that after graduation they would not have as much opportunity to perform art song, Margaret and Leigh became inspired by the idea of creating a salon series with the goal to bring this stunning music into people’s homes. This series gives them the opportunity to work with this music and also allows them to share the experience of salon music with audiences.

Our Mission

Artful Song aims to recreate the salon experience of the 19th century for modern audiences while providing context for audience members through the historical significance of this underperformed repertoire.
