About the Performers
The DaCamera Young Artists program is a fellowship for emerging professional instrumentalists, vocalists, and composers. The goal is to encourage musicians to develop the skills to become passionate, forward-thinking, community-focused “citizen artists” who reimagine the traditional notions of making music and contribute to society through the transformative power of their art and social engagement.
