PROVIDING SUPPORT, EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT THROUGH CLASSICAL MUSIC
RiverSong Music, Inc. was founded in January 2017 as a 501(c)3 dedicated to providing support, education and community involvement through classical music.
Our first project was to produce a three-day classical music festival in Galena, Illinois featuring nationally and internationally performing musicians, ranging from students to seasoned professionals. Additional projects have included a benefit concert in Manhattan NYC to raise money and support for RDJ Refugee Shelter, which provides material and legal support to those seeking asylum.
At a time when the national discourse has dried out and left infertile so much of the grounds of culture and community across the USA, RiverSong seeks to fill a void that we believe is felt in both personal and social dimensions. We believe that without access to creative and expressive outlets the members of our communities and society at large are incapable of being fully empowered. Musicians and artists of all types act as teachers and guides for audiences to explore the power of their own interior being. If we can do this with music that engenders passion and also empathy and hope, we believe that great music and great art will have a real and tangible influence in our world for the better.
