WHO WE ARE.
Vision Possible empowers musicians to express themselves through music and share their stories. Since our beginnings in 2015, we have grown from hosting local charity concerts to showcasing musicians throughout the world. Our goal is to present musicians an opportunity to display their talents and provide financial scholarship opportunities to make their visions possible.
Amir Kadamani Gonzalez is our scholarship competition winner!
Amir Kadamani González is the winner of the first ever Vision Possible Scholarship Competition! From Colombia, Amir recently graduated from Rice University with a Bachelor’s of Music in Violin Performance, moving on to study at Peabody Conservatory with Professor Herbert Greenberg. We were struck by his admirable intentions to return to Colombia as a professional violinist to advance equitable music education for the new generation. Giving back to his community in this way will be his way of showing thanks to his previous teachers and mentors, including Richard Young from the Vermeer Quartet and Kathleen Winkler from the Shepherd School of Music.
During the pandemic, Amir was a teacher with Through the Staff and gave free lessons. His students lauded him for his pedagogy as they could apply what they learned from music towards their own academic and personal pursuits, such as getting into college! We are so excited to see what Amir will do next and are proud to support his development as a musician and individual.

WHAT WE DO.
Through sharing our music, we want to make everyone’s visions possible. Proceeds from our charity concerts will contribute to scholarship(s) to support our musicians. The accessible livestream online charity concerts empower featured musicians to share their stories and visions through performance and dialogue, and network with their fellow peers and audience members.

The Vision Possible Scholarship provides financial aid to musicians of all ages and levels. We are looking for individuals with genuine passion that is visible in their playing and character.
SUMMER MUSIC MARATHON
Following the same model as our charity concerts, musicians support a select non-profit organization and promote important causes to encourage donations and raise awareness. These projects aspire to brighten people’s days and cultivate systemic changes.
