Decoda is a collective of versatile artists dedicated to creating dynamic performances and creative programs designed for social impact. Decoda’s pursuits place equal emphasis on artistry and engagement to create meaningful musical experiences around the globe through concerts in major international venues and neighborhood projects with vibrant community partners.
At home in New York City, Decoda works with partner organizations such as WQXR, the Police Athletic League, NYPD, and NYC Administration for Children’s Services to engage a diverse cross-section of the city through creative songwriting workshops, and interactive performances that promote collaboration and compassion. Music for Transformation, Decoda’s social justice initiative, empowers vulnerable and disenfranchised voices of incarcerated individuals and has been recognized by CNN, Huffington Post, the Associated Press, The Washington Post, and Billboard Magazine. Other ongoing programs such as the annual Decoda Skidmore Chamber Music Institute and residencies at the Royal Academy of Scotland and Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London as Resident Ensemble of Creative Performance serve to expand the global community of audience-centric performers and to create a ripple effect of deep engagement through music around the world.
As the Affiliate Ensemble of Carnegie Hall, Decoda’s activities are anchored in creating compelling performances.
