5HE’s training programs aren’t just for emerging artists. As chamber musicians working with no conductor, our shared, flexible leadership style allows us to develop and produce creative work as a team. In our cross-media performances and civic practice work, we’ve developed a proven method for collaborating across work styles, disciplines, genres, cultures, and continents.

Our customized, hands-on training residencies and workshops serve organizations and corporations looking for a fresh approach to fostering creative conversations, global leadership, and authentic collaboration.
