Our Philosophy

IMG_7703Musica Marin was founded on the belief that the lives of all people are enriched and nurtured by a love of music. We believe that the quality of high art and music positively influences the lives and culture within a community.

Performing chamber music in the settings for which it was intended to be experienced: in intimate, sensory-rich environments, audiences are able to directly connect to the music and musicians and gain a deeper appreciation and enjoyment of the arts presented.

Musica Marin is committed to inspiring the next generation of musicians and music lovers through its programs.
