Make Music


When we say, Performed by Anyone, Enjoyed by Everyone, we really mean it. And for 2017 we’re putting together a number of special events to draw even greater numbers of musicians and appreciators into the fun. You’ll be able to join in on mass appeal shows designed to bring together dozens — no, hundreds — of artists to perform pre-selected pieces together. Please see below for the evolving list of special events we have planned!
