Community Outreach

I believe music is about sharing. That is why I am always eager to find ways to make classical music more accessible to the community and make classical concerts an inspiring and engaging part of a thriving cultural arts community.

Buchanan Art Center Summer Concert Series

The Buchanan Art Center (BAC) in Buchanan, MI, is a nonprofit organization that provides educational programs and displays the work of local artists in monthly gallery exhibitions. In 2019, BAC executive director Danielle Willborn and I created the Summer Concert Series at the BAC. This concert series aims to find connections between visual and musical arts as well as make classical music more accessible all members of the community. It is family friendly, handicap accessible, and free to the public. For the Inaugural Concert Series, concerts were held in June, July and August after public gallery exhibition receptions. Thus, the series introduces classical music to local neighborhoods where people can connect with each other through music and art.

Indiana Music For Food Concert Series

Music for Food is a musician-led initiative for local hunger relief founded in Boston in 2009. Now entering its tenth season, the concert series has grown to include chapters in over 12 U.S. cities, additional collaborative concerts across the nation, and a growing international presence. The concerts raise resources and awareness in the fight against hunger, empowering any musicians who wish to use their artistry to further social justice. I am excited to organize Indiana Chapter of Music for Food which has raised approximately $2800 for the Food Bank of Northern Indiana through 2019 concerts.
