Incorporated in 2003, CAF was originally formed as a three-day event committed to bringing world-class offerings ranging from classical music to opera and jazz while ensuring music education was among its core purposes. All visiting artists conduct workshops, master classes and/or concert demonstrations for the educational benefit of Cayman’s youth. The festival is now a two-week event with the promise to educate, enrich, and empower.
