Rogue Collective, based in the Washington DC area, explores “the gap” between classical music, its culture, and other major art mediums through new collaboration, original composition, improvisation, and performance. As members of the newest generation of classically trained musicians, Rogue Collective believes in the power of collaboration and unconventional programming to help to bring the sounds, expressions and timbres of classical music to more audiences, including the audience of our own generation.
