A Colorado Gives Day Message from Diego Olaya, CMA Student

Diego CO Gives

“At CMA the atmosphere is welcoming, fun, and open to new people. I like it here because I get to learn to play, hear others play, and because I have a great teacher. My latest piece, a Fugue in A Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, has been a work of a year, and I wouldn’t have been able to come even close to playing that last chord without the help and guidance of my teacher, Michael Quam. In semester studio recitals, the Performathon, or the annual Honors Recital, there are plenty of chances to get up on stage and play my piece. And there are also ways to listen to good music, as in the Kaleidoscope Concert Series and (of course!) the Colorado Music Festival.”

Your gift on Colorado Gives Day will support our students and the faculty members who instruct and inspire them through music education. Click here to pre-schedule your gift now!
