ClassyAF is a classical music experience put together by two sisters that revives and subverts the sophisticated performance for millennials by fusing it with a bar-hopping experience. The performance retains the roots of classical music, but alters the experience to target younger audiences with cheap food, beverages and a more laid back environment. The initiative hopes to bring the music form back into the mainstream by detaching it from the notion that it is reserved for richer and older consumers.
Naomi and Talisa Blackman are the entrepreneurs behind ClassyAF that will offer a mixture of contemporary music styles reinterpreted on violins, pianos and cellos. The music will be played in a setting that is less fancy and serves beer and tacos. The effort hopes to fuse what millennials already enjoy to do on the weekend with classical music to make the experience much more approachable.
