What is CMI? A Message From Our Board Chair:
Melissa Unsell-Smith, Chair of the Classical Music Institute
Established as the education program of the Chamber Orchestra of San Antonio, CMI debuted in summer 2016 with a mission to cultivate classical music education as a gateway to the arts. In 2018, the Classical Music Institute enriched the artistic curiosity of 60 young students during our summer program. Many of these students don’t have access to classical music education, and during this two-week program they work with artists from around the world to fine-tune their skills. Without those who believe in the mission of CMI, this program would not be possible and these young students would lose their exposure to the arts.
