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 to 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.
