Mission: Founded by Dr. Arlene Shrut in 2003, New Triad for Collaborative Arts is a 501(c)(3) educational and arts services organization that provides professional, inter-disciplinary presentation skills to performers, creating classical music performances that are more engaging and accessible to audiences. New Triad is the only organization of its kind that goes beyond musical instruction to train artists in how to personally communicate and visually engage with their audiences.
As a premiere educational and arts services organization, New Triad for Collaborative Arts’ unique programs – combining the disciplines of drama, movement, musical Interpretation, and the art of speaking – affords young artists the opportunity to dramatically increase their expressiveness and transform the visual impact of their performances. The interactive and intensive process facilitated by professionals at the top of their fields enables performing artists to make a profound impact in today's musical market. New Triad not only improves the caliber of performance art as it stands today, but also serves to create cultural excellence for future generations. New Triad serves singers across the United States through their association with high schools, colleges and universities, national organizations and music festivals.
New Triad's interdisciplinary faculty is carefully selected so that all members reflect New Triad's educational approach: combining technical, expressive and philosophical excellence in providing young artists with the essential presentation skills to perform effectively both aurally and visually. Through this aligned approach, New Triad faculty goes beyond the training offered at most music schools and festivals to empower performers to move and engage contemporary audiences.

I have been volunteering with New Triad now for about a year and am constantly amazed by the passion with which this organization is run. There is a deep spirit amongst the founding members and members of the board to drastically improve the performance skills of classical musicians. New Triad's programs dissect every aspect of performance - from speaking to the audience to musical communication through movement, acting, and technique - to give students tangible insights that they can apply now and for years to come. By maintaining the traditions of classical music and injecting a fresh dose of reinvention, New Triad is creating young performers who are engaging and inspiring audiences like never before!
