Cascades Classical Music Foundation advances young musicians.

Central Oregon is home to extraordinarily gifted classical musicians, as well as some budding musical talent in elementary, middle and high school.  Cascades Classical was formed to facilitate a transference of musical excellence from Oregon's leading classical artists to our youth through competition, public performance, education, and financial assistance.
