Illuminating Music Podcast

Art of Élan is launching a podcast dedicated to the composers and their works performed in San Diego.  As part of its mission to keep classical music exciting and relevant, Art of Élan has made a commitment since its inception to commission at least one new work a year. As a result, numerous relationships have developed with emerging and established composers alike. The commissioned works of  AJ Nilles, Hannah Lash, and Ljova were featured in performances earlier this season.

 Demarre McGill and Kate Hatmaker

For the past 9 years, Art of Élan has been pioneering unique events and bringing the excitement of classical music to diverse audiences. Created by violinist Kate Hatmaker and flutist Demarre McGill, Art of Élan continually expands the scope of classical music in San Diego through its innovative, one-hour programming in unique performance venues.  By drawing inspiration from the word élan, which represents momentum, vigor and spirit, and providing an opportunity to connect directly with concertgoers, Art of Élan continues to engage and energize audiences in new ways.
