BE A YAP OUTREACH EVENT OR STUDIO CLASSROOM SPONSOR
We have SIX student musicians this summer who have auditioned and won their Fellowships in CPMF's Young Artist Program [YAP]. All six receive FULL SCHOLARSHIPS for this two week intensive program that allows them to be mentored by some of the finest chamber musicians in the nation as well as refine their art of ensemble playing at the highest levels with education director, San Antonio Symphony violinist Craig Sorgi.
This Young Artist ensemble perfect their talents, individually and as a group,
by performing NINE FREE OUTREACH CONCERTS FOR THE PUBLIC, INCLUDING FOR THE ARMY RETIREMENT RESIDENCE, RETIREMENT COMMUNITIES, AMONG OTHERS.
TO MAKE THIS ALL COME TOGETHER SUCCESSFULLY, CPMF must rent studio space for two weeks in order to conduct this full-scholarship program, pay the Festival Artist teachers, and provide Event transportation and lunches for our aspiring student musicians. It is quite an undertaking but one whose impact lasts a lifetime for these motivated young artists.
Consider helping us in our endeavor to make this 10th Young Artist Program
season an incredibly successful one, and help us leave our YAP Fellows with a life changing experience.
THE 2013 WINNERS ARE

* Alex Strader, clarinet [18, Smithson Valley HS]

With SIX YAP FELLOWS this summer we are still looking for those music lovers who would like to help underwrite a YAP Event or the YAP teaching facilities.
If you love chamber music and have a passion for education, please consider a gift of $500 or more to this wonderful program to underwrite an outreach event or rehearsal studio space and help us pass on the musical torch to the next generation.
