The artistry of the Classical Music Institute (CMI) will fully display its talent as educators and performers during the 2021 season, announced today. CMI will continue its partnership with the Edgewood Independent School District (EISD) for its summer education program, and will begin its 2021 season, Harmonious Power, on April 3, 2020.
Fulfilling the mission to cultivate classical music as a gateway to the arts, CMI’s summer education program returns at the EISD from June 14-25, 2021. The summer education initiative is a two-week program, offering Bexar County students intensive study in violin, viola, cello, bass, piano, and voice. CMI continues its partnership with EISD, who has hosted the program since 2016.
CMI Artistic Director, Paul Montalvo, says: “Because of our generous donors, we’ve been able to grow even during this difficult time. We look forward to continuing our partnership with EISD, whose generous hosting of our program has been key to its success.”
The 2021 season, Harmonious Power, includes works by William Grant Still, Jesse Montgomery, Franz Schubert, and a world premiere by Texas native, Edna Longoria. On June 26, 2021, CMI will make its H-E-B Performance Hall (Tobin Center for the Performing Arts) debut with Leonardo Piñeda conducting in his CMI subscription concert debut. Leonardo, a young conductor and graduate of Bard College, has been conducting CMI’s summer education program orchestra over the past two years.
Donald Mason, CMI’s Executive Director, says: “Absence of music has made the heart grow fonder. The impact that arts make has become much more important. Beyond thrilled to light up the Tobin Center stages and share this wonderful gift with the community once again.”
Subscriptions and single tickets are now on sale for the 2021 season. Full program and ticket information is available at
