Dear Friends,

It is my great pleasure to announce the inaugural season of Musaics of the Bay! My name is Audrey Vardanega, I am the founder and Artistic Director of Musaics of the Bay, a nonprofit Bay Area chamber music concert series with a dual focus on chamber music performance and mentorship of young musicians. During my musical journey over the last decade, I have been most fortunate to have built a wide network of musically gifted friends from all over the world. I was inspired to establish Musaics of the Bay as a platform for these exceptional artists to share their musical stories with Bay Area audiences. Each music-maker invited to participate in Musaics has benefited greatly from the guidance of acclaimed teachers and coaches. Through our partnership with local music programs, Musaics artists are, in turn, committed to mentoring under-resourced children as they navigate their own musical explorations and journeys. I hope to see you at one of our performances or events this season!

Audrey Vardanega, Founder and Artistic Director

 

Our Mission:

At Musaics of the Bay, we believe in the transformative and life-enriching power of classical music. By uniting local and international musicians in chamber music performance, we present evenings of musical dialogue and collaboration to Bay Area audiences. We offer musical opportunities to communities in need, providing opportunities for under-resourced children to rehearse, collaborate and perform side-by-side with international and local stars of the classical music world.

In Fulfillment of our Mission, Musaics of the Bay:

  1. Spotlights top-tier local and international musicians in chamber music concerts across the Bay Area.
  2. Teaches, inspires and collaborates with under-resourced Bay Area children through our partnership with local music education programs;
  3. Commissions new works by emerging composers with powerful stories to tell.
