Following our recent announcement of the new CME Artists division, the Center for Musical Excellence is thrilled to announce CME Juniors!

 

Just pre-teens, these young performers are already standout rising stars. In the enduring spirit of our mission of Moving Musicians Forward, CME will provide them with individualized mentorship and guidance, as well as professional opportunities. We look forward to the significant careers they are sure to have in the coming years!
