One of the main goals I’ve had with SoundCrowd since it’s creation is to share with our audiences the real sense of joy that singing and making harmony together can bring. We want people feeling that we’ve shared the proven health and social benefits of music and singing with them so that they leave our concerts happier than when they arrived. Performing high energy and fun shows 100% a cappella really highlights the possibilities of what we can do when we come together in the name of making harmony through harmony. - SoundCrowd Founder and Artistic Director, Scott Pietrangelo 18 SUCCESSION PLANNING | Change is Coming at The Music Gallery | ANDREW TIMAR 61 WE ARE ALL MUSIC’S CHILDEN | MJ BUELL 82 REARVIEW MIRROR | Run, Rabbit Run: New Music & the Traditional Symphony | ROBERT HARRIS 16 MOZART Quintettes dédiés à Haydn Pentaèdre ACD2 2756 e Canadian wind ensemble Pentaèdre presents a new take on Mozart’s six quartets dedicated to Haydn.
