Known for its collaborative spirit, Art of Elan has been pioneering unique events and bringing exciting classical music to diverse audiences for over 12 years through innovative partnerships and bi-national initiatives that have cultivated curious audiences on both sides of the border. Its consistent track record of sold-out performances stems from its commitment to commissioning new work, collaborating with world class artists and composers, programming engaging and thought-provoking concerts, and expanding its impact in the region through thoughtful community engagement programs. By drawing inspiration from the word élan, which represents vigor, style, and spirit, Art of Elan continues to engage and energize audiences in new ways.



Art of Élan is honored to receive a CMA Classical Commissioning Grant for its upcoming collaboration with the Formosa Quartet and esteemed composer Lei Liang. The commissioned string quartet takes its inspiration from the vocal music of aboriginal tribes of Taiwan and will be premiered at The San Diego Museum of Art in March of 2016.
