ALKALI is a truly diverse US-based string ensemble comprised of intensely trained classical soloists, many from backgrounds typically underrepresented in this realm of music.

ALKALI’s mission is to make classical music more relevant to the modern-day listener through diverse programming of original compositions, classical works, genre fusion, and improvisation. ALKALI engages communities both within the US and abroad by collaborating with local artists in order to break musical and cultural boundaries, inspiring audiences of all ages.

The musical style of ALKALI is broad and ever-changing. As an assorted group of musicians, our musical taste ranges from classical to jazz, R&B to hip-hop, and rock to pop – all of which are reflected in our performances. Having studied and trained as classical musicians, we thoroughly enjoy performing the well-known (and lesser-known) composers of the genre, but we also strive to mix the classics with the Billboard charts. You may even find us improvising on stage.
