Classical Revolution was founded in the fall of 2006 at Revolution Café in San Francisco’s Mission District, with the goal of making classical chamber music more relevant in our neighborhoods and communities. In the Bay Area, over 1000 musicians have performed at more than 1,200 Classical Revolution events in over 125 different venues. As interest grew outside of San Francisco, a network of chapters developed world-wide. Over 50 cities have hosted Classical Revolution events around the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, as well as Indonesia, Argentina, South Korea, and Japan.
