In honor of the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and reflecting a desire for national unity and inclusiveness, Classical Movements has formed the Hope & Harmony Ensemble. The ensemble performs two masterpieces of American classical music that perfectly represent our President- and Vice President-Elect.
During this difficult time in the arts, we have turned the necessity of virtual performance into an opportunity to assemble a group of musicians who would have been unlikely to have ever come together, even under normal circumstances.
Conceived to bring together a divided country through the power of music, this diverse and representative ensemble of musicians from across the United States reflects and celebrates our country’s own beautiful patchwork. Audio and video engineering by Arts Laureate.
The Hope & Harmony Ensemble is conceived, produced, and directed by Classical Movements.
