WELCOME TO REVEL

A new vision for classical music

REVEL believes that everyone is wired for a passionate response to great music, and that great music is essential to our lives. Our passion is presenting chamber music concerts that move, delight, and inspire——we call them revels. This means the focus is on sharing and celebrating fantastic music, not on protocol. This means you can come as you are, clap when you feel like it, and “revel” in the music like no one is watching.

We’re not sure who invented the rule that you have to sit up straight in prim rows, formal clothing, and complete silence to hear classical music. But it doesn’t apply here.
