SEEKING PERFORMANCE PARTNERS
musiConnects, a non-profit community building music education and performance organization, is looking to partner with a Mattapan based independent artist or arts organization to create a unique collaborative performance piece which will integrate our professional violin, viola and cello musicians with other genres of music, visual or performing arts based in Mattapan.
Who We Are:
The mission of musiConnects is to model and teach self-expression, peer leadership and community development through the transformative power of chamber music. Our most intensive work is focused in the neighborhood of Mattapan and adjacent communities.
musiConnects began offering free music instruction and performance at the Chittick Elementary School in 2007. Since that time, musiConnects has been committed to contributing to this vibrant community through accessible performing and teaching activities.
What We Want to Achieve:
For the past 11 years, musiConnects has focused on building relationships in Mattapan through access to music education and performance, but as we enter our 12th season, musiConnects has identified deepening its commitment to this neighborhood as a priority. Our goal is to engage more meaningfully with Mattapan residents, including co-creating programming with existing cultural resources. While we have played for audiences in Mattapan, we have identified a clear vision to curate performances in collaboration with cultural organizations already active in the neighborhood and across genres.
What We Are Looking For:
An individual artist or arts and culture organization currently creating and performing in the Mattapan neighborhood who would be excited by the opportunity to collaborate with professional string musicians to create an experimental performance merging genres.
If you or your organization are interested in joining our professional string musicians in creating a fun and experimental performance experience to take place in Mattapan for the benefit of the greater Mattapan community, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
