Studio 209 presents Simplicio Villarreal - Photographer 

“We don't seem to have a problem with clouds changing, in fact we lay down and try to see what forms they create. and they do change, never go back to what they were. And later with some anger or disappointment we look at someone and say "you've changed so much", as if we were not supposed to.”


Before recorded music was invented, folks would host fabulous concerts in their homes with live performances of classical music, and they called these events "salons"! Studio 209 is proud to host some of Vancouver's most talented musicians for SALON SALON, a casual concert series by local artists. Proceeds from these events are donated to Saint James Music Academy, who teach classical music at no cost to children living in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, Canada’s lowest income urban neighbourhood.

Studio 209 offers free space rental to musicians who would like to programme their own salon for this series. Intimate 25 person audience capacity. Email us to learn more!
