We believe classical music is an art form capable of expanding a person’s worldview, and connecting to this artform hinges on participatory experiences. We guide our audience into these participatory experiences by creating accessible programs that are engaging, educational, and entertaining.
Casey and her team are wonderful musicians and educators. Their interactive concerts are informative and fun, perfectly tailored to inspire a love of music in young audiences. Showcasing the range of each instrument sparked wonder and curiosity in visitors that may have never heard these instruments before. I was particularly impressed by their musical selections, challenging visitors young and old to discover something new in classical music. They are everything we look for in guest performers for the Children's Museum and we look forward to working with them often in the future.

Ears Engaged is a woodwind quartet formed in 2019 by Casey Stamm.
Offering more than a traditional chamber concert, EE performances are fully scripted shows where music discovery and audience engagement are top priority.
Ears Engaged has performed concerts at some of the top community spaces in Western PA including the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh in Oakland, The Children's Museum, Phipps Botanical Gardens, and Pittsburgh International Airport.
Currently, Ears Engaged has pivoted to a focus on virtual interactive concerts. They are in residence at Weinberg Terrace Senior Living Community in Pittsburgh, PA under the leadership of The Iris Music Project.
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s Music Department hosted bassoonist Casey Stamm and clarinetist CJ Corbett in their chamber program designed for kids ages 7-10, but pleasing for all ages. Three sessions drew enthusiastic listeners—kids, parents, camp leaders, and attentive adult library patrons. Both Casey and CJ are consummate musicians and dynamic teachers. These programs were a delight and we look forward to inviting them back.
