    Making music.

    Making space.

    Welcome to the website of Canadian classical violin and piano duo There is Room. Our name is intentionally multi-faceted: we believe there is room on the classical concert stage for all kinds of new, under-represented, and non-traditional music, and that there is room in our audience for listeners from all walks of life. Have a look around! We're glad you're here.
