Cliburn in the Community provides the experience of live classical music performance for free to a broad audience through partnerships with vibrant venues and organizations throughout the Fort Worth area. The program brings in young, emerging artists for weeklong residencies to include performances and other community engagement opportunities.
“The Cliburn’s mission is to spread excellent classical music with the largest audience possible, across cultural and economic boundaries,” said Jacques Marquis, Cliburn president and CEO. “And our dual mandate is the encouragement of excellent music and new artists. With Cliburn in the Community, we are able to answer both by presenting extraordinary young pianists in performances at places easily accessible to the public at large.”
