Classical Music For The World organizes donation-only concerts to raise money for community improvements in Austin and around the world. This community service is accomplished through the generous donation of talent available from invited young and adult, amateur and professional musicians, as well as through all the caring members of the community dedicated to the cause. The result of all this support ties the beneficiary more strongly to the community, inspiring ongoing giving and sharing and increasing the potential for greater community stability and quality.
CMFW believes that beautiful music has the power to heal, and so delivers live classical music to people with emotional and physical pain, and to people who often cannot easily venture out, thereby bringing the community to these people in retirement homes, nursing homes, children’s homes and hospitals they visit. In these intimate recitals, both audience members and musicians express their appreciation for one another. Through this interaction, CMFW teaches the importance of performance in music education which challenges musicians of all levels of talent and teaches that the true purpose of being a musician is giving and sharing.
Please note that Agape Recitals are not open to public. These performances are for the patients and residents of the hospitals and retirement homes we visit.
