Mission

Mission

Crossroads Music organizes public performances by accomplished musicians with roots in cultures from around the world. Our concerts, workshops, master classes, lectures, and other activities educate the public by providing a welcoming and affordable environment for music-lovers of all ages and backgrounds to explore seldom-heard sounds and engage in intercultural dialogue. We also work closely with other community and cultural organizations that share our goals.

Crossroads is a community-based not-for-profit organization where musicians retain the freedom to stay close to their roots and also explore new avenues of expression. We are inspired by and seek to maintain West Philadelphia’s historic role as a diverse and inclusive meeting place for different cultures, social and economic classes, and progressive social movements.
