Leadlights is dedicated to presenting contemporary and classical music in accessible, interactive ways.
We are passionate about bringing people together through music - in performance and through workshops outside the traditional concert setting.
Perform + Create
We perform because we believe that witnessing beauty - whether sublime or gritty - is a human imperative, and that everyone should have access to beauty through music.
We interact with every audience because we believe in taking down the wall between performer and audience member. We build our work around the joy of discovery and experimentation.
We invite participants into the process of creating music with us because we believe that making art together brings people into authentic dialogue and can foster self-realization, reflection, and change.
We love new music and believe in the vital importance of both past and living composers’ work.
We seek partnerships with organizations that are established community pillars throughout the five boroughs. Our programs are designed to give community members a world class performance and a chance to explore their own musical voice.
