MAC Music Innovator

The MAC Music Innovator program is a year-long music residency that highlights Black classical musicians who embody artistry, innovation and a passion for education and community engagement. Supported by the Multicultural Awareness Council, the MAC Music Innovator works closely with the CSO staff and community partners to organize workshops, masterclasses and chamber music performances in schools and throughout the community. The Residency culminates with a final concert featuring members of the CSO.
