This marks the eleventh consecutive year CIM has participated in the Conservatory  Project which began in 2004 as part of the Kennedy Center's Performing Arts for Everyone initiative. The Project aims to develop young talent from the nation's leading conservatories while Washington audiences are introduced to young performers with extraordinary talent in classical instrumentation, vocals, jazz, musical theater and opera--the next generation of professional musicians!
