Meraki: The soul, creativity, or love put into something; the essence of yourself that you put into your work


Meraki is a chamber ensemble co-founded by former classmates, Anastasia Christofakis, clarinet, and Elizabeth G. Hill, piano. They are recipients of the 2018 Classical Commissioning Grant from Chamber Music America. The ensemble is dedicated to making a social impact through music. Meraki’s recurring focus is the music of “Essence” that evokes the culture and history of people through their folk sound and musical language.
