B3LLA is devoted to their role as a premiere chamber ensemble fundamentally committed to being professional and responsible artistic members of the community. They have served as the 2014–15 Ensemble-in-Residence with the San Francicso Friends of Chamber Music in the inaugural Presidio Sessions. Their mission is to inspire connections through engaging performances, reflecting shared human experiences and emotions and to motivate people to recognize and cherish the beauty in themselves and in others through powerfully transformative, classic music. B3LLA was founded in 2010 when Mimi experienced the profoundly transformative power of music while battling breast cancer. As a physician, Mimi had embraced and championed wellness—the constant, conscious pursuit of living life mindfully and peacefully. B3LLA seeks to inspire others with that power, through high-quality, live chamber music performance, for anyone open to finding a place of centered peace and calm as an essential part of their mindful journey through life. B3LLA is a Steinway Ensemble. Learn more about B3LLA at
