Nonprofit Overview

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.

Vivre Musicale is an excellent organization that seeks to make a difference in the lives of the musicians it contracts, the audiences it engages and the larger populous. Their goal of creating accessible and relevant musical experiences for audiences is a necessary and laudable effort, yet Vivre seems to be one of, if not the only, organization with this aim. I find myself, time and time again, pleasantly surprised by the high quality of artistry and musicianship presented in each concert as well as by the careful programming that always includes a myriad of instrumental and vocal colors. Each program has a deliberate musical or social theme but manages to capture ideas without making the listener weary from camp or preachy agenda. It is an organization of the highest quality in every possible realm.

I'm not particularly knowledgeable about classical music, but I can say that the musicians in Vivre Musicale are extremely talented and passionate about what they do. I've been to a number of their concerts, and I've enjoyed every one of them. The venues are always comfortable spaces, and the musicians are friendly and engaging. I can't recommend them enough! This doesn't even mention the fact that the organization is providing invaluable performance opportunities to gifted young musicians that haven't necessarily "made it" yet. It's refreshing to know people still care about the arts and are not willing to let it go!

I attended one of Vivre Musicale concerts and I found it to be inspirational as well as entertaining. To see such young and talented performers of the Arts come together and share their wonderful music with the public is quite lovely. I hope to see them perform again soon.

I saw this group perform towards the end of 2010 and they were amazing. They captured my full attention because they played with such passion, their performance was truly "music to my ears". Each note was skillfully played through an array of instruments and after each segment they left their audience wanting more. If you are ever in an area where Vivre Musicale will be performing I would definetly reccomend that you stop in and listen to them play because you are in for a stellar performance.
