It takes more than talent to make it as a performer. At Strathmore, our mission is to nurture talented artists to help master their craft and succeed in the real world.
A flagship program of Strathmore’s Institute for Artistic and Professional Development, the Artist in Residence (AIR) program was created in 2005 to support artists as they transition to professional careers. Since its inception, the program has mentored 94 musicians ages 16 to 32. Every year, a class of six is chosen after a competitive selection process. Strathmore’s AIR benefit from the support of mentor musicians, participate in professional development seminars, and are offered extensive performance opportunities throughout the 10-month program.
Program sponsored by Cathy Bernard/Bernard Family Foundation♪
