The Trifecta

No we're not referring to the 3 members of our trio!

We think there exists a far more important trifecta:

1. A composition: an entity of fine art

2. An ensemble: hungry, driven, passionate, strong work ethic, hopefully some talent...

3. A performance venue: intimate for the purpose of engaging the audience, so they may see the sweat on our brow, interact with us, talk to us.

When you combine these 3 elements, "The Trifecta," then performances can leave a lasting impression on audience members.  An emotion, a feeling, a mood, a thought--something that will then be shared afterwards with family and community.

Our goal, as this impression spreads, is to bring classical music back to the masses; to show the added value of fine art and its role in enhancing society.

This is our passion; this is our job.

C̶l̶a̶s̶s̶i̶c̶a̶l̶ music is for everyone.
We break the boundaries of classical music, one concert at a time.
— Mission Statement

The Meaning Behind "Kavanah":

"Kavanah" is an ancient Hebrew word that specifies the intention and sincerity of heart needed for effective and honest prayer.  We wish to express this in our music.
