SA'OAXACA is the first tuition free chamber music festival exclusively for string instrumentalist (violin, viola and cello) in Oaxaca, founded by the Amatista Quartet from the University of Michigan and partnered with the Fine Arts School (Escuela de Bellas Artes de la Universidad Autónoma Benito Juárez de Oaxaca, UABJO) and the Fonoteca Juan León Mariscal of Centro Cultural San Pablo. The SA'OAXACA vision is to provide excellent chamber music opportunities to students in Mexico, creating a bridge between young professionals from prestigious music institutions and pre-professional students in Mexico. SA'OAXACA is also committed to increasing the study and promotion of Hispanic and Latin American composers. We want to especially thank the Fondo Nacional de Cultura y las Artes (FONCA) for their significant support of SA'OAXACA in its third year.
