Summit Music has been presenting outreach concerts and events to audiences throughout Minnesota since 2011. Founded by violinist Natalie VanBurkleo-Carbonara, the organization originally started as a music series. Now in its 11th Season, the organization is growing and thriving. Through a partnership with Springboard for the Arts Incubator Program, Summit Music aims to provide two types of music outreach in Minnesota: music education outreach for students and music outreach at senior communities. Summit Music is a hub for senior communities to plan year-round music professional entertainment for their residents. Summit Music is home to the innovative pandemic Parking Lot Concerts for Seniors. Our programming is made possible by a combination of hired concerts, donor funded concerts and grants from community foundations, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council and Minnesota State Arts Board.
