Young Artist Program
This season, the Festival has in residence 14 selected student-musicians from the Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia for Music from Angel Fire's "Young Artist Program". These young musicians reside in Angel Fire during the Festival season and study and publicly perform along side the Festival's professional musicians, thereby gaining invaluable concert experience. The Program is designed for education and performance and broadens the Festival's education outreach concerts, "Music in Our Schools."
Music in Our Schools
The "Music in Our Schools" program is the first such program in New Mexico designed to serve the rural part of the State and through this, a broad segment of the diverse population is reached. Musicians from the "Young Artist Program" perform over 35 classroom concerts in rural area schools together with associated lectures and discussion as part this special and unique program.
The 2013 Young Artist/Music in Our Schools program is supported in part by the Albert I Pierce Foundation, Phillips Foundation, Harold N. Tenenbom Educational Fund, Thistlewood Foundation, Chevron Questa Mine, Phil Long Toyota and the Angel Fire Community Foundation.
