More about Parea

Jointly created by Cortlandt Matthews, Jessica Moreno, Kelsey Lewis, Lucas DeJesus, Paige Kenley, and Sergey Tkachenko, the Parea Song Project makes music in conversation.

We believe music is most effective when framed as a system of dialogues between composers, performers, and listeners. We present new and recent music in a way that is honest, colloquial, and focused on questions we confront in our daily lives. Parea is dedicated to commissioning composers and artists to make new work in conversation with us, creating pieces that touch on themes dear to both performer and composer.
