The River Charles Ensemble

Purpose Statement

In the busy schedules of university students, it is difficult to find a time and place for musical development at an institution so strongly committed to academia. The River Charles Ensemble believes that the highest level of musical and personal development in the academic musician requires a blend of circumstances that build upon selflessness, generosity, and sincerity. Interdependency within the ensemble is a fundamental feature that requires every member to be active leaders in the music-making process and expectations for the highest quality of performance is driven by a demand for intense creativity and a strong commitment to standard as well as innovative performance traditions. The River Charles Ensemble is committed to providing and evolving the environment and atmosphere that strives to enrich quality musical expression in the lives of Harvard-affiliated students, allowing them to make a strong musical impact on all audiences around the world.
