Boris Goldmund started the monthly salon in 1991 on his one day off every month from a full 365 day performance schedule at the Ritz Carlton San Francisco, the US Navy on Treasure Island and twelve ensembles in which he was featured. 

He invited fellow artists to make music together, share music and visual works of art that were in progress, eat potluck dinner and otherwise commune.

The Monthly Salon has continued without interruption ever since and has grown in amazing ways.
