Quiet Hearts Ensemble was founded in 2013, and has been providing exquisite and unique musical experiences with their Music Oasis series ever since. Music Oasis is an intimate and relaxing musical occasion that is like a holiday away from everyday pressures. The Quiet Hearts Ensemble improvises, or spontaneously composes, beautiful music. Listeners are transported, moved and inspired by enchanting flavours of music embracing classical, new age, jazz, folk and world styles. It’s romantic. It’s meditative. It’s soothing.

Here’s what others have said about Quiet Hearts Ensemble’s work:
It was enthralling from the opening improvisation to the final most recent composition of Craig Addy, Rising. Mr. Addy is an extremely talented composer. Both he and Mr. Meadows are not only very accomplished musicians, they are also fine entertainers. Their banter was filled with interesting musical tidbits, humour, and personal anecdotes. They completely engaged every member of the audience from the moment their performance began until the final mesmerizing piece. I left with a sense of peace and joy. What a delightful experience!
