Since 2006, the Cartagena Music Festival offers the Master Classes Program. This initiative seeks to strengthen the development of music education in Colombia, as well as generate meeting spaces between artists of international stature and the Colombian academic music community.
This program offers the country's musical community classes with the leading international artists invited to the Festival. A significant percentage of the participants (students and teachers) receive mobility grants managed by the Festival and its allies, through an annual call that seeks to support Colombian talent with guarantees.

Youn Talents

Through this program, young Colombian performers between the ages of 18 and 26, with a broad artistic career, are selected through a public call at a national level for their musical excellence and experience. The objective of this program is to have outstanding emerging musicians with great talent as guest artists of the Festival, generating a recognized space to project their career. Since its appearance, the program has had a profound impact on the momentum of their artistic careers at the national and international levels.

Within the framework of the Festival, efforts continue to be made for impulsive activities, such as the instrument and underwear clinics, the construction of bagpipes and drums, the loudest fight for children and the setting up of a new version of the instrumental exposition The Past News of Music. As now, rely on a higher construction of unconventional instruments, based on recyclable materials, in a request to research a craft of environmental awareness. The Lutheran Instrument Center, a Salvi Foundation project, in agreement with the Colombian Ministry of Culture and the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation project, will be responsible for this series of activities.
