Connecting children, families, and seniors with their world through the transformative power of music.
You know the moment it happens. You gather with loved ones, or arrive at a party, and then ... the music starts. The right music can make a memory. That's what Chicago music ensembles Azurite and Coalesce bring to their audiences. Intimate, personal performances in a range of styles (classical to popular), at venues including:
violin + viola individual + workshops
Music creates joy in every part of our lives. In lessons, you will discover the music that makes you feel most alive. Whether you're picking up the violin for the first time, or continuing your studies, you will build foundational techniques and grow a love for music that lasts.
