The Classical Revolution mission is to bring live chamber music to casual venues where audience members can socialize, listen, enjoy a beverage or a snack, relax, and have a good time! We want our audience to feel comfortable and welcomed by the intimate and relaxed atmosphere; stripping away classical music ‘elitism’ that this style of music typically carries and make it accessible. There is no dress code, no rules, and no tickets necessary at our events.
Classical Revolution is here to invigorate audience interest, break traditional expectations of ‘classical’ music, and present concerts involving both traditional and non-traditional approaches. Performances can take place in cafes, museums, shops, libraries, art galleries, churches, homes, in open spaces and beyond – and can feature collaborations with other professional musicians and artists from various styles and backgrounds.
We present performances by our core members and guest artists. We seek to offer new performance opportunities, and to inspire with our unique style of presentation, giving us a chance to showcase our musical skills among those with common interests and support.
The Classical Revolution Colorado (CRCO) chapter is part of the growing international Classical Revolution network, and was established in 2011 by Bronwyn & Derek of Madera Dulce - Bass Clarinet & Contrabass Duo.
The original Classical Revolution was founded on November 12th 2006 at Revolution Cafe in the Mission District of San Francisco amongst a group of classical musicians wanting to bring chamber music into a more casual coffeehouse setting. Their purpose was to break down the traditional expectations of classical music by making it truly accessible. The popularity of this movement has increased tremendously and the Classical Revolution model has spread around the world, with nearly 30 active chapters in cities around the US, Canada, and Europe.
