We aim to bring you onto the stage with us, to our side of the music, and into our thinking about it. We want to be close to our audience  — the energy we share is why we love making music. 

Our dream is a full year of music every year. We want to open up classical and experimental music to give our city an un-rarified experience of our art form. An experience built around curiosity, listening, understanding, and resonance. A music practice built around the idea that joy springs from sharing.

And we need your help to make it happen!
