Mission: Vivre Musicale is a non-profit chamber music society that seeks to provide young up and coming musicians a strong foot hold in the classical music world through the diversification of concerts, genres, and the melding together of various art forms that further enhance the concert going experience. It is a collection of select young classically trained artists and guest artists whose goal it is to push the limits of classical music leading the world into a future of living art, where classical music no longer place holds as an aural museum of the past but rather a vibrant, living expression of past impetus informed by contemporary knowledge and performance practice. Through the collaboration of visual and other performance artists as well as different musical genres, Vivre Musicale hopes to diversify the would-be classical music audience, not limiting or pigeon-holing itself in a narrow frame of works but continually seeking to make connections between works of various styles. In total, Vivre is life, the living music. It is the music that inspires, propels, and gives voice to those who otherwise would be silenced in a world where classical music is pronounced dead. It is the chamber group of the past, the present, and the future.

Not only is Vivre Musicale a constantly evolving brigade of talented musicians but they also incorporate local and international artists into the mix as well. Visual and performing artists are prevalent in VM's performances, advertising, and fundraising . This kind of grassroots outreach and collaboration is so important to the art community. as a whole. I was given the opportunity to create artwork inspired by their first show, Evolving Landscapes. Since then, they have included many other artists to heighten the overall experience of their shows. By bringing together such a mixture of talent and creativity, Vivre Musicale is surely a pleasure to work with and watch grow.
