WELCOME TO REVEL

A New vision for classical music

REVEL is a multi-configuration classical band devoted to presenting terrific chamber music concerts that move, delight and inspire––we call them revels. This means that the focus is on sharing and celebrating great music, not protocol. It means that you can come as you are, clap when you feel like it, and let yourself get caught up in the music like no one is watching. In an effort to cultivate both an understanding of classical music and an appreciation for its place in modern society as a relevant, living art from, our mission is to bring an exceptional classical music experience to the community that is devoid of all pretension, and yet exhibits the highest artistic caliber.
