We turn music lovers into music aficionados, one concert at a time.

The more we understand what is happening in music, the more inclined we are to engage in it. The deeper audiences understand music, the better equipped they are to engage with other music experiences. We want our audiences to understand music and musicians better because they saw a Canvas concert.

COMING SOON (MAY 19, 2019)


The Lab is back in session, folks. We’re taking a look at various ways music is repeated, reduced, thrown away, and used again. With a bonus set of PSAs from an environmental scientist. Limited seating. Make your reservations now.




It is 1933. You are a young Jewish composer living in Amsterdam. Across the eastern border of the Netherlands lies Germany. You hear rumors of increasing discrimination against Jews. You continue to write and hope for the best, not realizing what is around the corner.

Mokum shares the stories of nine musicians and composers living in Amsterdam before and during the Nazi Occupation. Their compelling tales are told through animation, film and performance of pieces they wrote.
