To support two new compositions that Edna Alejandra Longoria will be writing for the Classical Music Institute of San Antonio. CMI provides classical music education to Bexar County’s youth during a two-week, as well as a year-long, outreach program. One of Longoria’s pieces will be written for the CMI faculty and the second one will be written for the CMI students. This project will allow her to challenge herself as a composer by creating two pieces targeted for different difficulty levels, as well as sharing her Latin roots through her music and giving back to the Bexar County youth musicians.
