Founded in New York City by musicians of many professions, the Highline Chamber Ensemble revamps the perception of stuffy concertizing by emphasizing the audience experience. Highline is a conductorless string ensemble comprised of classically-trained musicians; the group performs in spaces across New York City that include lofts, studios, and bars.
Highline’s ticketed events showcase classical music as well as original arrangements of popular non-classical songs. The end result of Highline’s efforts is a convivial atmosphere for music lovers of all genres to mingle, drink, and – most importantly – enjoy the music!
With a moniker inspired by Chelsea’s High Line Park in NYC, the Highline Chamber Ensemble aims to represent the merging of cultural preservation with contemporary society.
Highline musicians also play together in smaller groups as part of the Highline String Quartet. The quartet is available for hire for weddings and other events.
