So, How's It Going...

As the co-founder Emerald City Music, our Executive Director is often asked, "Who on earth would start a classical music organization in 2016?!", to which he pleasurably responds, "Well, us... someone has to change the status quo!" Here we highlight some of our successes, hoping it inspires others to create change in their communities, and we also share our challenges so that our own community can rally to help.

Why Olympia?

If we are bringing musicians from all over the world to the Pacific Northwest, shouldn’t they perform more than once? And wouldn’t it be great if we could reach more new listeners? So, we explored the other cities in the region, looking for a strong community that our project could have an immense impact in. We very quickly found ourselves in Olympia, the state’s capitol.
