Musicians

Eureka is dedicated to engaging musicians through its unique organizational structure.  We uphold a culture based on passion, purpose, empathy, and mutual respect by ensuring that every voice is heard and every individual engaged.  

We are currently building a platform for official membership in the ensemble and will be holding auditions in Fall 2018. This roster represents musicians that have played with us between December 2016 – present.
