Lux Musicae highlights the chamber concert ambience which conveys “transparency” to realize artistic productions that integrate music, dance, theatre and the visual arts.
Our vision is to perform chamber music of the past, present and future; to share the intimacy of ensemble music setting. Ensemble music is unique in how and why it is created in the minds of the composers and usually involves anywhere from three to eighteen musicians.
Lux Musicae’s audience brings together all types of concert goers; specifically, those interested in collaborations between artists. The ensemble embraces young composers to commission works for performance and competitions, and offers accomplished young artists an opportunity to collaborate with professional musicians. Artists can participate in performances by invitation, audition or recommendation.
Artists interested in performing with Lux Musicae may email the ensemble’s Artistic Director.
