Green Vibes Project

The Green Vibes Project (GVP) mission is to inspire awareness and discussion on sustainable music making through new small ensemble commissions, currently focusing on percussion with goals to expand! The project was started in 2018 by husband and wife, Chase and Christine Banks, because they saw a need for sustainability awareness in the classical music industry.

As the name states, this “green” organization focuses on commissioning music that utilizes metal-based instruments and/or recycled instrumentation (i.e. recyclable materials such as scrap metal, cardboard, glass bottles, etc.) to promote environmental sustainability and provide meaningful repertoire to music literature. Deforestation and over-harvesting of the wood necessary to build quality 21st-century instruments not only impacts accessibility to those expensive instruments but hinders worldwide goals towards defeating climate change. GVP utilizes commissioning series to invite a handful of composers and musicians each year to perform a world premiere concert, including professional recordings that build our database of sustainable pieces. Series 3 will continue to push GVP on a path towards creating a sustainable movement to keep the music industry relevant for the future.
