The artists of Picosa came together in 2014 as a collective of professional musicians (Jen Brown, flute, Andrea DiOrio, clarinet, Elizabeth Brausa Brathwaite, violin, Patti Garvey, cello, Kuang-Hao Huang and Jani Parsons, piano, Jonathon Kirk, composer) that is committed to bringing an eclectic body of works to the stage. Picosa is especially proud to present the works of Chicago composers each season. Picosa performs in a wide variety of contexts throughout the Chicago area from children's concerts at Hesed House (an organization that helps people rising out of homelessness) to new music festivals including Chicago's acclaimed Ear Taxi Festival.

"The individual and collective ensemble playing by Picosa is brilliant, passionate, nuanced and musical. When I think of Picosa, I think of great musicians who perform with grace and virtuosity who are fantastic, generous citizens in their bringing music to underserved communities, and who are passionate about the music of living composers!" – Augusta Read Thomas
