In the course of a Street Symphony event, our aim is to start a conversation: to engage our audiences in Skid Row or in the jails through musical performance and dialogue. Outside our events, Street Symphony musicians are world class educators, performers passionate advocates and performers.
Street Symphony musicians are some of the most talented musicians in the country. And yet, we crave the opportunity to understand an authentic, accountable role as artists in a society that is wracked by pain and incredible strife. What is the role of the arts in a world in pain?
Street Symphony has changed the story our lives as artists in a deep way. We’re understanding that our role as musicians isn’t just as world-class performers, but to learn how to be humble members of a community - to lean in to our own willingness to be changed by the work we do.
We're learning how to be storytellers and citizens.
Help us lean in. Join the conversation.
