Classical Revolution was founded in the fall of 2006 with the goal of making classical chamber more relevant in our neighborhoods and communities.
After a successful first year of weekly shows at Revolution Cafe in San Francisco’s Mission District, the organization began to receive invitations to preform at other local venues including Amnesia and the Red Poppy Art House – soon to be followed by the Legion of Honor and de Young Museum, and then major venues like Yoshi’s SF and Herbst Theater.
In its 10th anniversary year, Classical Revolution undertook a cycle of Beethoven’s 9 Symphonies, performed at venues around San Francisco including a performance of the 9th Symphony at Grace Cathedral in front of a 1000 person audience.
Press articles from the New York Times, Strings Magazine, Wall Street Journal, and The Economist brought wider attention to Classical Revolution’s efforts.
As interest grew outside of San Francisco, the network of chapters began to develop, with over 40 cities hosting regular Classical Revolution around the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, as well as Indonesia, Argentina, South Korea, and Japan.
Over 1000 musicians have performed at more than 1200 Classical Revolution events in over 125 different venues in the Bay Area alone.
Audiences enjoy the accessibility of the venues and the fun laid back approach, as well as the diversity and quality in programming.
