The Eastwood Ensemble

East Nashville's Community Collaborative Underground Chamber Music Ensemble

About Us



A Community Collaborative Chamber Music Ensemble

Founded in December 2010, The Eastwood Ensemble is a hip chamber music group composed of professional classical musicians who come together to perform concerts for local non-profits in the East Nashville area. Many members either live or work in the neighborhood. The musicians select their own pieces to perform while sharing fun and interesting facts about them. 

100% of the group is volunteer.

What we promote...


 Relevance in Music

The Eastwood Ensemble works outside of mainstream "classical" formulas--holding creative events where the individuality of each artist is celebrated with audience members in a sincere and intimate environment. Instead of walking into a typical concert hall with ticket in hand, one can sit with friends in a laid-back atmosphere to hear music of equal quality. We won't bore you with a program of our credentials and the timeline of Mozart. You'll learn a few things, but mostly the music speaks for itself!

For these reasons and more, You might say that they are the pioneers for chamber music in the underground music scene. Are you thinking amps, beer kegs, and standing room only? Who knows! Mozart and Beethoven were once considered pop music...


Collaborative Arts and "Culture" Sampling

 
The Eastwood Ensemble features a performance P(ART)ner on every concert. The P(ART)ner is a local artist or group from a different type of music or another visual or performing art genre all together. Past events have included poetry,ukelele enthusiasts, singer-songwriters, contra-dance folk musicians, culinary artists, and even historic architectures have been the 'centerpiece' of concerts (Chamber Music Underground). 

Business is also an art! We are grateful to collaborate with many of our wonderful indie all-stars, such as Bongo Java, My Veggie Chef, Kismet Candy, Fat Bottom Brewing Company, Five Points Pizza, Italia Pizza and Pasta, and much more!
 

Arts for Community Enhancement


Each event helps to raise awareness and donations for a local independent non-profit organization in the East Nashville area. Audience members get the opportunity to spend time with fellow neighbors, the musicians, and share conversation with the featured non-profit. Whether it's helping stray animals, people in need, community garden projects, or individuals with intiatives to contribute to their neighborhood, The Eastwood Ensemble is here to support.
