This is a Groupmuse Virtual Premiere

An online debut of exceptionally crafted pre-recorded content, coupled with musician + audience videochat.


PROJECT: MUSIC HEALS US is proud to present the first of a 16-part digital concert series based on the college-accredited, Beethoven-inspired music composition course being created for inmates across the country. This course, called MUSIC FOR THE FUTURE, is an expansion of our previous 5-day intensive workshops which PMHU teaching artists have given in state and federal prisons for the past five years.

Beginning in September 2021, and opening with Beethoven's charming and welcoming Op.18 No. 2 quartet, you will have the opportunity to take part in the ongoing creation of this exciting new digital composition course, experience all sixteen of Beethoven's String Quartets in a new and up-close way, and learn how our students compose using the same tools Beethoven used. We hope you'll join us to take a deep dive into the beauty, inspiration, pain, and redemption that are contained within Beethoven's music, while learning how to craft original works through breaking down Beethoven's compositional process.

MUSIC FOR THE FUTURE will pilot in partnership with the Bard Prison Initiative in Fall 2022 led by PMHU's lead teaching artist and course developer Brad Balliett.

This Digital Residency by Project: Music Heals Us has been made possible with support from Chamber Music America through its Residency Endowment Fund.
