Workshops are geared towards 1) Career Development: The Business side of a Performing Artist 2) MEET the ARTIST Sessions: Open to the Public! 3) Masterclass and Jam Sessions: Professional guests coach young artists-to-be.
Karavika’s Testimonial as Performing Artists in our June 2012 Concert Production
“Today’s Music Unboxed performance reminded us of something… experiencing music – whether as an artist or as a listener – is not merely about notes on a page or technical facility, but in a deeper sense, it involves risk taking and openness. Music Unboxed provides a platform for students and artists to engage in ways beyond the “notes on the page” – and in return, share the experience with the audience. As an Indian-inspired chamber ensemble aiming to push musical boundaries ourselves, we were honored to lead today’s student workshop and concert. The magical part for us was working with the young string students of the community who had beautifully prepared our Indian-flavored compositions, were brave enough to delve in to the realm of improvisation, (many for the first time!), and then perform with us for a warm and receptive audience.” -Karavika (Watch/Listen)
