Two dear friends of mine live in Las Vegas.
Periodically they “throw a little soiree” in their spacious home,
inviting some of the best hidden talent in town.
Traditionally, Solons were parties developed by the noble,
talented and well educated in Europe
(and championed by Thomas Jefferson)
who entertained each other with good food,
conversation and musical interludes.
For my friends in LV,
the concept is simple:
many of the professionals perform nightly
at the Mystere and other Circ de Soleil entertainments,
yet wish to expand their talent into new and inventive ways.
The result is beautiful: song and dance,
even visual art of paintings and sculpture are presented to each other
in a safe environment where all are experimenting
with new and unusual expressions of their talents,
even stretching into each others art.
They are so supportive of each other that the stretch into water ballet,
performance art of dance and original compositions.
I was blessed to attend their October Event,
and the Solon experience was memorable.
Because I live in Virginia I have been unable to attend since,
yet the Solon has grown and developed into a regular event
through out the year stretching the invitations
into other fields of expertise:
stage magic and a full participation of the children of these talented people.
As a way to “still be there” – even though I am unable to attend,
I created Solon Amulets
which combine the Treble clef and the “S” for Solon:
each was given to the performers who attend as a “thank you”
for present their talent to each other.
Unavailable to any one else,
these amulets are hard earned by their performances at the Solons.
