Established as the education program of the Chamber Orchestra of San Antonio, CMI debuted in summer 2016. CMI provides classical music education to Bexar County’s youth during a two-week program, as well as year-long outreach and continuing education. This includes: private instruction and group lessons; classes in chamber music, orchestra, ear-training, rhythm training, and music appreciation; salon performances, outreach concerts, faculty concerts, and a final concert with students at the Edgewood Theater for the Performing Arts. The CMI Chamber Orchestra will continue to perform as a resident company of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
CMI was created to enrich, inspire, create intellectual curiosity, foster personal growth, and cultivate better citizens of our community.
With the success of our education program, the long-term goal is to partner with a local school district to establish a year-round, accredited institute. Classical music education is the core and would be part of the curriculum offered.
Every donation helps empower positive change for our area youth. Whether it’s funding music education programs or local classical music concerts, your donation makes the difference.
