Calling all Revolutionaries!

If you would like to be considered for one of the 9 spots on the CRPHX 2011/12 Season at The Lost Leaf, we invite you to submit yourself or your performing group for consideration.  The last Sunday of each month from September to May, CRPHX will present a different artist to showcase the variety of local chamber music talent here in the Valley!  Compensation is based on a revenue-sharing model that CRPHX has established with The Lost Leaf, and thus varies according to attendance.  The gig goes from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. More details will be provided should your group be selected.

Welcome to CRPHX!

The ‘Classical Revolution’ began in San Francisco in 2006 at the Revolution Cafe amongst a group of classical musicians wanting to bring the timeless themes of Haydn, Beethoven, and Shostakovich into a more casual coffeehouse setting. Their purpose was to break down the traditional expectations of classical music by making it truly accessible.

We wanted to bring some of the same energy here to Phoenix. It’s such a great concept and with so many classical music happenings in Phoenix, it just makes sense to take this music into the community – on public transportation, into pubs, open spaces, alternative venues, and beyond – and expose the art form to new audiences.

And so we introduce Classical Revolution PHX to you – a new advocacy group for classical music in the Phoenix Metro area.
