Sonic Forest

Our musical instruments are made from trees, each a different species. Our musical training and experience is diverse. Our beautiful, spontaneous, evocative music also expresses a mystery - an awesome connection to nature, to music, and to one another. Sonic Forest weaves a delightful tapestry of classical, jazz, show tunes, American, Celtic and world folk musics, wild world fusion and spontaneous, soothing improvisations. Our instrumentation and ensemble is variable, depending upon your needs. Our lecture-performances and workshops, offered either in-person or online,  include presentations about the relationship of music to nature. With core instrumentation of oboe, violin, upright bass, piano, accordion and percussion, Sonic Forest provides the right music, workshop, teacher or lecture-performance for your special event or occasion. Whether you're seeking a soloist, private teacher, educator, lecturer, duo, trio, quartet or quintet, Sonic Forest provides appropriate, engaging, uplifting entertainment for any event or occasion.
