Welcome Friends, Family, and Fans to the Patreon Page of Palaver Strings! Palaver is a 13-member musician-led non-profit string orchestra in Portland Maine, whose mission is to strengthen and inspire communities through music. As performers, we present thoughtful, varied, honest, and fun performances in spaces ranging from traditional concert halls, to hospital cafeterias, to abandoned speakeasies. As educators, the Palaver Music Center offers a holistic approach to music education at locations across Portland on a pay-what-you-can basis.

But really, that’s just the beginning: we’re commissioning new works, and collaborating with and learning from musicians of all styles; we host song-writing workshops with folks from every walk of life; we sing and dance with toddlers in the morning and coach chamber music in the afternoon; we’re designing workshops for advanced musicians, and for special education departments.

Palaver Strings is redefining the role of the classical musician in our community; we believe in lifting up humanity, and the power of bringing people together. We are excited to share this with you here on Patreon, whether your interest lies in hearing the music, knowing the people involved, or discussing how complicated it is to make a plan with 13 co-equal members!

We are honored and humbled by all the support our Patrons have given us over the past few years. Maybe you’re a longtime supporter and you’re ready to increase your pledge - or maybe you’re just hearing about us and your excited to learn more! Whoever you are, we’re grateful that you’re considering supporting our work, and we look forward to meeting you.
