Musicians Intersecting Politics is part of our 2020-2021 season "Musicians on the Frontlines," a series of free virtual concerts, talks and community events that explore the ways music creates positive change, and how it is adapting to a new world.

54% of the arts workforce in the United States has been lost since March 2020, making collaboration among organizations vital. Musicians on the Frontlines is presented as a partnership between Cuatro Puntos and the Autorino Center for the Arts at the University of Saint Joseph. Thank you for continuing to support the arts by attending our events!

Cuatro Puntos Ensemble is the artist-in-residence at Christ Church Cathedral, Hartford, CT
