We formed The Tapestry out of a deep love for PEOPLE and MUSIC. We introduce people to musical traditions currently unfamiliar to them in order to bring DIVERSE COMMUNITIES of music lovers TOGETHER.
By playing our singular, unapologetic, high-octane fusion of the BEST of opera and rock, we remove the veil between classical and popular music, right before their very eyes and ears, showing the world that the things we have in common are greater than our differences.
