Philosophy & Mission
Decoda is a chamber ensemble comprised of virtuoso musicians, entrepreneurs, and passionate advocates of the arts. Based in New York City, Decoda creates residencies, innovative performances, and engaging projects with partners around the world. Their mission is twofold—to present world-class chamber music performances and to make deep artistic connections in places where music is rarely heard.
The artists of Decoda have a background of shared training and experience as fellows in the two-year leadership program known as Ensemble ACJW—The Academy, a program of Carnegie Hall, the Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute in partnership with the New York City Department of Education. Since its inception in 2011, Decoda's residencies have touched audiences in schools, hospitals, prisons and bars, as well as in renowned concert halls across the globe.
Recent travels have taken Decoda to Abu Dhabi, Iceland, Japan, Mexico, Germany, Hong Kong, and Switzerland, and in the 2013-14 season, Decoda will present residencies in the United Kingdom and Denmark, along with return engagements in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
