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]

Thanks to all who gave during THE BIG GIVE.

We thank all our friends who took part in The Big Give S.A. to support Cactus Pear Music Festival. It was a day of great generosity across the nation and a wonderful way to pump up the excitement for all the non-profit organizations that make their cities an even better place to live. Thank you San Antonio!

Season 18's program notes have been published!

CPMF's 18th Season Is Just Days Away

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. July 3 is just days away and 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.


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. Click the Season button above to read the full listing of programs as well as to see the festival artists and read their impressive bios. In the meantime....
