...connect local youth with the performing arts. We have given over $34,000 in scholarships over the past seven years to deserving students pursuing advanced training in music and theater, and we sponsor a variety of master classes, in-school performances featuring visiting artists, and children’s programs. The flagship event is the annual San Juan Chamber MusicFest presented each August under the artistic direction of Max Levinson. We invite you to our upcoming events.
We are one of the founding members of the Alpenglow Arts Alliance and as such, we work with other arts-related organizations to support each other’s mission. We serve as partner supporters for the Open Bard Poetry Series and the Ouray Community Chorus.
