The mission of the Miami Classical Music Festival is to provide affordable, world-class musical instruction and ground-breaking performance experiences to young artists and the South Florida region.
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.
