The Young Artist Program is the keystone of CPMF’s educational mission,offering to serious young musicians in the San Antonio area a tuition-free opportunity to study with, and be mentored by, some of the nation’s top chamber musicians — the Festival Artists. The program also gives these young artists an opportunity to share their talents with the community in free concerts they give around greater San Antonio.
If you have an interest in the musical education of dedicated young artists and would like to sponsor one of our education programs or YAP Fellows, please contact CPMF’s Executive Director Reneé Davis at 210-838-2218. Or email her at
