community

At the core of VIVO's work is a belief in democratizing the arts. We work with community partners to present musical initiatives that transcend cultural, economic, and physical barriers.

There is no one-size-fits-all format to a VIVO event, and our diverse formats reflect our diverse audiences. Join us in continuing this work, and making world-class music available to all.
