The Da Camera Young Artist Program is a fellowship program for emerging professional instrumentalists, vocalists, and composers. This program is designed to achieve two goals: 1) Provide career-expanding experiences and training to the next generation of artists, encouraging them to create music for the community throughout their careers, and 2) Offer young students and neglected audiences exposure to great music and talented performers, using music as a vehicle for scholastic exploration and inspiration. Da Camera Young Artists participate in an exciting variety of performances, workshops and school visits. They perform at the Wortham Center; The Menil Collection; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and area hospitals. They are the principal teaching artists for Da Camera’s innovative Music Encounters program.
