Sharing the joy of music through passionate
collaboration between singers and instrumentalists.

Audiences benefit from collaboration between instrumentalists and singers, resulting in deeper understanding and performance of the music

  • Providing excellent music to the community of Greater Boston via a new, more inclusive method of rehearsal and performance
  • Capitalizing on the power of music to contribute toward social improvement via one benefit concert each season for an organization whose mission is reflected in our programming for that performance
  • Cultivating high school artists and their supporters for the future through our mentoring scholarship program
