Community Collaborations

The activism of Motown. The experiences of immigrant youth. Drum-making. Percussion ensembles. Songwriting. Recording technology. Album production.

World Cafe Live’s in-depth school residencies and community programs provide opportunities for music-making, writing, and collaboration through programs that connect with real-world issues.

We love to work with local partners and think outside the box. With innovation and collaboration at the heart of our programs, “musical match-making” has become one of our specialties. World Cafe Live incubates new ideas. We’ve commissioned and produced more than a dozen world premiere compositions, often crossing musical boundaries in adventurous ways. Our music is fresh, socially engaged, and responsive to our social and political landscape.

We’re pushing the boundaries of what accessible music-making can look like for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. We’re always open to new ideas and partnerships, so get in touch!
