Our Mission

Kadence Arts is an non-profit organization that incubates artistic projects, curates performances, and engages local communities through music making.

Our mission is to unite the community by providing new experiences to support and encourage an appreciation and understanding of how music impacts and enriches our lives. By empowering musicians to break the boundaries of creation, and teaching our community to experiment with self-expression, we’ll create an active ecosystem of art making and learning.



Kadence Arts presents three ongoing programs, along with one-time large scale projects in the Boston Area. 

Open Call for Artists

Seeking musicians, artists, performers, and poets in the greater Boston area for Strength & Sensitivity, a touring, multimedia concert experience that blends percussion music, poetry, and audience interaction to inspire meaningful dialogue exploring themes of contemporary gender dynamics, intersectional feminism, and empathy. Each production is unique, customized to feature the voices and perspectives of local artists within the framework of an evocative and inclusive program. Through a partnership with Kadence Arts, Strength & Sensitivity is coming to Boston on March 9, 2019, to celebrate International Women’s Day, Women’s History Month, and the United Nations’ HeForShe Arts Week.
