Reba Cafarelli - Festival Manager

“It has been truly inspiring to watch Chicago's contemporary classical music scene grow and blossom over the past decade. What makes this growth so remarkable is that it can be attributed to the supportive and collaborative spirit of the city's musicians and composers. Ear Taxi Festival is the perfect opportunity to celebrate and elevate the work of the entire community.”
