Our goal is to reconnect music and society once again. Music can be a powerful tool, it can give us motivation, it can be a platform and it can even heal us. Because of this we are working everyday on a variety of projects that serve this purpose: rediscover the “us” in “music”.

Art is not only the goal but also the way to keep moving forward. We strive to fill theaters and lives as well.
We explore music two ways: the search for artistic excellence and its power to build communities. We want to take music form those sacred spaces that are not always welcoming to everybody and transform it to an empowering tool.
Our projects view music as an empowering tool. Learning music at a young age can help kids grow in and out the school. Special scholarships for music students that aim to become professional musicians can be a key element for them to to focus on their talent and have a better shot once they’re out of school.
Valuing the work of today’s composers will help assure a strong and healthy culture in the future. Thinking of our future, we have also started working to unite music and science to discover new ways in which music can once again help our mind and bodies.
