Cactus Pear is a musical jewel

Three cheers for San Antonio's Cactus Pear Music Festival.… There are many reasons why San Antonio is a destination city: the Alamo, Texas history, the River Walk. But for two weeks, Cactus Pear turns San Antonio into a summer destination for musical majesty. We are lucky to have it. San Antonio Express-News Editorial Board [July 2013]

CPMF's 18th Season Is Almost Here

The programs are set, the musicians are in place and we are finally ready to open the door to news of the upcoming season with a set of GOLDEN KEYS. While July 3 is still way out on the horizon, my excitement for the four programs I've created and for the slate of fantastic musicians that will be walking through our festival door is spilling over.


I'll just give you a hint of things to come since you'll be able to read about the new season on the Season page of the website, but we open the season with Golden Keys featuring the extraordinary 2012 San Antonio International Piano Competition gold medal winner Lo-An Lin in works by Bach, Mozart and César Franck. She will be joined by CPMF favorites Bella Hristova, violin, and Ara Gregorian, viola, along with a festival debut by a stellar solo cellist Jonah Kim. And for all you baroque music lovers, Baroque is back with our last program, The Baroque Baedeker—through Italy, Germany & France. That's just a peak for now.
