About Eureka: The Eureka Ensemble is a collective of Boston’s finest young professional musicians dedicated to transcending the boundary between art and social service. We strive for everyone to share in the “eureka!” moment that a great work of art can inspire. A group of highly motivated young musicians founded the Eureka Ensemble in 2016 in an effort to create ways to use music-making as a direct bridge between their art and Greater Boston’s diverse community. Eureka's mission is to use classical music as a platform for social service and outreach. Our concerts focus on supporting social causes by creating partnerships with social service organizations, raising awareness, raising funds, and making an impact in the local community through music and the orchestral experience.
