Since its 2013 inception, Miami Classical Music Festival (MCMF) has been proud to establish Miami as a premier destination for elite young classical musicians to train and perform. While the next generation of classical artists come to Miami to receive instruction from an assembly of world-class faculty, the community benefits from accessible public concerts featuring top talent alongside many of classical music’s greatest living performers in repertoire rarely heard in South Florida.
With training institutes in Orchestra, Opera, Piano and Conducting, MCMF development also includes a Alumni Division, pre-college program, a pioneering Career Institute, and the Professional Miami Wagner Institute. MCMF receives nearly 1,500 international applicants each season, selecting around 300 participants through a rigorous audition process. MCMF has welcomed students and faculty from over 25 countries and many of the world’s most esteemed music institutions. The festival attracts internationally sought-after performers and teaching-artists eager to identify and cultivate the pre-professional careers of talented young musicians.
In six short seasons, the festival has expanded into eight full weeks of programming presenting over 70 public events each summer including 5 full opera productions, 4 symphonic concerts, 7 student and faculty recitals; 20 opera, chamber music, Zarzuela and Musical theater concerts; and 30 masterclasses hosted throughout Miami venues. Furthermore, MCMF is dedicated to engaging local youth and Miami’s underserved neighborhoods through successful outreach, community partnerships and by providing accessible events and tickets.
After unprecedented growth in its six years, MCMF continues to build on its success by expanding programming, increasing community outreach, and creating unique classical opportunities that bring pride to our vibrant and cultured city.
