Music Builds Community

Caravanserai provide access to classical music for the whole family. You can enjoy classical music your way at our interactive concerts. Passionate about building community, our chamber ensemble and orchestra promote music education by giving family-friendly and sensory-friendly concerts.  

Our Mission: Caravanserai brings people together through shared emotional connection to classical music by providing equitable access to classical music for families with young children and vulnerable communities. We believe in promoting empathy through listening to classical music and listening to others in need. The emotional empathy inspired by music helps us see more similarity between us and others so we are more likely to act compassionately towards each other.

Caravanserai Music needs your support to create a music video project focused on healing and community! This spring, we will create a video performance that is accompanied by works of art from local artists. We will present it in an interactive, live video event co-hosted by the Shenandoah LGBTQ Center. 

We need to raise $3,000 by April 30 to achieve our fundraising goal. Every gift counts! Your support will help us to complete this video project and help us to promote a message of love, acceptance, and healing. You can donate on Facebook ( or here at our website. Thank you for believing in the power of music to build community!
