What we’re working on 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.

Meeting the Ghosts 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.

We turn music lovers into music aficionados.

Fusing performance with learning, we give audiences unforgettable live music experiences.

We’ve been curious about lots of things. Here’s a taste of our past programs:
