Concerts in Motion

About Us: Professional Musicians

Over the course of our life as an organization, we have presented over 300 musicians. We feel lucky to operate in a city that has so many talented and kind musicians. Our city is brimming with talent. Our city is also brimming with individuals who are socially isolated for a multitude of reasons. Music is a terrific tool that can bring so much relief in an instant.

In the past six months the musicians listed below have provided beautiful music for these individuals. The musicians Concerts in Motion sends to reach the community are kind, caring, and incredibly talented, and they offer their time and talents for the highest purpose: to bring meaning through their music. This relieves social isolation for their listeners, whatever the circumstances.

Our role as an organization is to connect musicians who feel called to do this work with a large landscape of service agencies serving so many different communities. By playing the music most beloved by their listeners, our musicians make a tremendous impact and we feel honored to present them.

We are so grateful to them for their care in doing this work in private home and group settings and rolling with so much that they encounter in the community. Those who receive their visits and their music tell them how lucky they feel. We agree and feel the same way.
