The Emerald Coast Music Alliance (ECMA) was founded in 2017 to give the experience of world-class, classical music to demographics that would otherwise never have these types of opportunities, bringing “Carnegie Hall to the People”.
Through week-long festivals, our Music Director Alon Goldstein and world-class guest musicians perform classical pieces in multiple venues throughout Northwest Florida; traveling through Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton and Jackson Counties.
In our first year, 2017, the musicians of Emerald Coast Music Alliance performed in five venues. In 2018, performances tripled to fifteen venues.
In 2019Emerald Coast Music Alliance increased to twenty-five performances in seventeen locations. Accompanying our Music Director Alon Goldstein were the guest musicians; Grammy nominated cellist and conductor, Amit Peled, and the Peabody Cello Gang.
In 2020, The Emerald Coast Music Alliance has scheduled over forty performances with twelve musicians, including our artistic director, Alon Goldstein, four of Alon's classical pianist students, classical guitarist JiJi, percussionist Mitya Nilov, and a brass quintet.
