On Sept. 23, Salvi will open a new showroom in Berlin. The store is set to carry both Salvi and Lyon & Healy harps, in addition to strings, music, and accessories. “The opening of Salvi Music Berlin will allow us to better serve harpists in eastern Germany and northeastern Europe in general,” says Antoni Gralak, managing director. The 1200 square feet shop features separate lever and pedal rooms and will eventually include a technicians workshop. Located on the popular Schloßstraße (“Castle Street”) in an early 20th century building, the shop is close to the baroque Charlottenburg Palace, named for a queen consort known for her support of the arts.
To celebrate the opening, Salvi Music Berlin will host a reception in the new showroom on Friday, Sept. 20th beginning at 3 pm. A concert in the Gartensaal of the Hotel Bristol featuring Alisa Sadikova will follow. More information can be found on their Facebook page.
