Tina Lee Hadari, Founder and Executive Director
Tina Lee Hadari established Music Haven in 2006 because she was convinced that chamber music and professional musicians could be integrated more fully into a community. A founding violinist of the Haven String Quartet, the resident ensemble of Music Haven, Tina has always dreamed of combining her passions — chamber music, urban music education, and community service interests — to create an ensemble dedicated to public service.
