Our Mission

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.
