what we do
We NETWORK musicians locally, regionally, and around the world. We are happy to connect you with other Crescendo musicians in your area.
We support a network in which SERVING is a priority. Crescendo serves musicians and other professional artists in various ways. With concerts, festivals and our publications, we also aim to serve the broader society.
Our most important motivation comes from BELIEVING in the Christian message. We want to open paths to belief and to support faith. We therefore also work with churches of all denominations - and SERVE them through high quality art.
