They perform orchestral music that speaks profoundly to our community and is both representative of its time and timeless, whether written today or centuries ago. Kaleidoscope stretches the boundaries for what is thought possible without a conductor, both by musicians and audiences, to allow us all to grow through the process. By regularly collaborating with living composers, their music represents our time; and, by designing programs that explore less conventional concert experiences, they allow audiences to feel more personally connected to music and the musicians who perform it.
