|A grant from the Bexar County Internship Program was given to CPMF allowing us to bring on one college student who is interested in the art and non-profit world. We thank Bexar County for this support and Sara Briggs for accepting that position. And we thanks Friends of CPMF for supporting Terri Landez and her internship role. Our 2016 interns are:
Sara Briggs is a senior at UTSA and will finish this summer with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and a minor in Music. At a young age, she fell in love with singing and knew that she wanted to work in the music industry. Sara participated in choir throughout high school and college. During her college career she also participated in the organization Musicians of Business (MOB), which organized UTSA Underground and the very first Music Biz Day conference. In the future, Sara hopes to start a music festival to benefit victims of human trafficking. Sara is excited to be a part of the Cactus Pear Music Festival team this summer as the Communication and Media Specialist.
Terri Landez, a San Antonio native, who is currently a sophomore Cello Performance major at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY. At IC, Terri is most notably involved as a Leadership Scholar, a section cellist for the Ithaca College Symphony and Chamber orchestras, and the Vice President of the "HEARD" Creative Arts Outreach Program. In 2014, Terri was selected as a Young Artist's Program [YAP] Fellow for Cactus Pear Music Festival and is thrilled to be returning in 2016 as an intern.
