Cuatro Puntos is a multi-faceted, non-profit organization that activates music as a pragmatic and universally accessible stimulus for social change, cultural awareness, and empowerment of the underserved. Serving Connecticut, Cuatro Puntos hosts a mixed-genre concert series in multiple cities as well as music/curriculum alignment programs in school classrooms in Hartford (in partnership with Hartford Performs) and beyond. Our roster of local, professional musicians, known as Cuatro Puntos Ensemble, collaborate with local, national, and international guest artists to produce genre-defying and culturally significant concert programing and album recordings. Aiming for the highest in artistic excellence while working alongside socially significant artists such as the Afghanistan National Institute of Music and musician activist Ameen Mokdad (Mosul, Iraq), Cuatro Puntos Ensemble has been reviewed by Fanfare Magazine as having a “great depth of sound” and “virtuostic performance”. They have performed extensively throughout the United States as well as in Bolivia, Brazil, England, Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey, and Afghanistan. To date they have produced six albums of varying genres and styles on major international record labels like Métier and Toccata Classics. They have been included on the soundtrack for films produced in England, Australia, and Afghanistan, and have been guest lecturers at prestigious universities such as New England Conservatory (Boston), Columbia University (New York), Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (Germany), and Goldsmiths College (London). Cuatro Puntos' crowning achievement, in equal partnership and co-foundership with Hartford's Christ Church Cathedral, is Music Moves Connecticut. MMCT is a participatory music program building community and a safe space for expression among those living on the streets, in shelters, and in various states of housing insecurity around the state. It includes Music Moves Norwich and the Music Moves Hartford Street Choir. Recently featured by WNPR and NBC, this first street choir in the northeast has been taking the city by storm with its animated performances. All of Cuatro Puntos' programs aim to activate music's potential as one of many relevant, viable, and complementary methods for creating a more just and inclusive society.
