Classical Revolution PHX (CRPHX) aims to bring chamber music to the masses, stripping away the classical music ‘pedestal’ by performing in unusual spaces and making the music accessible to the public. CRPHX is here to invigorate audience interest, break traditional expectations of ‘classical’ music, demonstrate the connection between humanity and classical music and present concerts involving traditional and non-traditional approaches. CRPHX performances take place in cafes, pubs, clubs, homes, on public transportation, in open spaces and beyond – and can feature collaborations with local musicians and artists from various styles and backgrounds.
