In 2012, co-founders Danielle Cho, cello; Rebecca Jackson, violin; and Tiffany Richardson, viola presented "Haim" by Polina Nazaykinskaya in the Washington DC region. This chamber work, inspired by the life of David Arben, Holocaust survivor and former associate concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra elicited and overwhelming response from both performance and audience. This experience of musical storytelling and human connection ignited a desire in these women to band together to change communities, one performance at a time.
