Master Classes at Festival Mozaic

 

Festival Mozaic is proud to partner with the San Luis Obispo Youth Symphony and the Cal Poly Music Department to offer free master classes to the musical youth of San Luis Obispo County.  Throughout the six-year history of this partnership, 26 master classes have been presented.  See the bottom section of this page for a complete history of these classes.
