Sustain Music is a chamber music project that connects community by creating engaging and interesting musical experiences. Our programs tell stories through music. We talk about the deeper meaning behind each piece – for instance: why the composer wrote it, what to listen for, and what to think about while listening – and we connect these concepts what’s happening around us in the present. Each project – together with an artistic partner that specializes in a different creative medium (e.g. visual arts, cuisine, and dance) and community-serving nonprofits – spotlights an important topical issue linking music and life.
