Our mission is to support the professional and artistic growth of San Francisco Bay Area musicians whose focus is the small ensemble. Through programs that include fiscal sponsorship, grant-making, career development, and curated performance partnerships, we strengthen the careers of local artists who contribute to a vibrant and diverse music community.
We envision a thriving musical climate for San Francisco Bay Area musicians with sustainable careers who are celebrated by engaged and dedicated audiences. We value small ensemble music-making for its intimacy and immediacy, and champion its many genres by serving those who create and share it.
