I hardly miss a Musiqa performance. Musiqa always introduces me to new music and genres that continue to challenge my thinking and view of art, and life in general. Concerts are always engaging with introductions from composers and opportunities to ask questions.

Joel Luks

“Every concert is an artistic escapade.”


“Exhilarating, challenging, entertaining.”
