CCMI aims to bring the world's finest musicians to Charleston to celebrate chamber music and solo performance. Its faculty artists are committed to mentoring the next generation of concert artists. The beauty and culture of Charleston are an inspiring environment for our intensive week of music making.

Founders' Notes

As colleagues, Yuriy Bekker and Paul Sánchez have enjoyed making music together - both in chamber music, and also in concerto performance - and our shared musical values are at the core of CCMI: our commitment to excellence, to approaching music as artists connected with the traditions passed down to us, and as musicians excited to help foster the very best in the next generation of professional musicians.
