Providing Cayman’s young people with music and arts education opportunities is a vital element of all Cayman Arts Festivals.

CAF eXtra 2015

has scheduled FREE strings and piano workshops to be held at St Ignatius School on Thursday 18th March by visiting international musicians Ingrid Schoenlaub and Sodi Braide.  These workshops are open to our young musicians from all over the islands.  Please contact us at enquiries@caymanartsfestival.com if you wish to attend or need more information.

Over past few years the Cayman Arts Festival and the Visual Arts Society have brought music and visual talents together creating a one of a kind art event. Similarly, the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands have hosted visiting and local musicians in collaboration with the exhibitions running concurrently with our Arts Festivals with a Friday evening happy hour at the Gallery.
