Since 2005, Strathmore has proudly supported the budding careers of musicians through our highly regarded Artist in Residence (AIR) program. Join the AIR class of 2022 for their debut concert at AMP, when all 6 class members and their mentors take the stage for an unforgettable evening of cross-genre collaborations!

This annual event remains popular for a reason: when talented performers from diverse artistic backgrounds come together, the results are always unexpected—and always fresh.
