What we're about

Dear music aficionados,

Welcoming the new year of 2020, we have changed our name to “Classic Adventures in Music”. Moving forward, we’d like to broaden our musical horizons. We realize the great influence classical music has had upon the music world in general; one need not wander far to realize the strong influences the classics have given us.

In the grand scope of things, whether your music is performed by orchestra, chamber ensemble or solo performances, instrumental or singing, we’d like to continue to share, inspire and support musicians with this site to reach more listeners and ever important music fans.

If you would like your performance to be listed with us, please write to us. One of our volunteers or organizers would love to help.

Music is a great bridge to friendship and beauty in life!
