More on The Furies:
The Furies is a contemporary violin duo whose mission is to bring intersectional feminism into the concert hall through immersive performance experiences that challenge our audience and community, for us to learn more about the histories of women in a white male dominated canon, and to encourage audience members to demand more diverse programming from their musical institutions.

What is the "Third Place"?

In community building, the third place is the social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home ("first place") and the workplace ("second place"). Examples of third places would be environments such as churches, cafes, clubs, public libraries, or parks.

Our goal is the create community between first-time concert goers, families, Ann Arbor townies, University of Michigan students, and many others for an evening of accessible, high quality chamber music.
