This series curates collaborations between contemporary art & music to provide immersive and powerful concert experiences for limited attendance audiences.
The FINE ARTS (music, art, movement, theater, design) are constantly evolving, and many artists in the Washington, DC area are helping to push that evolution. This series finds those who are tuned into the innovations and creative happenings of our time and area, and brings them to you in a format that is both immersive and easy to digest. We want you to be excited by what these folks are passionate about, and to learn and understand what pushes these innovations while supporting those who take up the task.
It's our mission to show you that not all new music/art is abrasive or abstract, that even when it is, it can be contextualized and inspiring, and that the creative minds of our time have left us wanting more from traditional presentations of it. Through creative collaborations between musicians, artists, designers, and technicians, we'll present highly curated experiences for limited attendance audiences, to make the works we're passionate about more accessible to new listeners. Please support our mission, attend our concerts, and hear / see / feel the new concert experience.
