“Classic 107.3 is so happy to encourage young people in the area to study music," said says John Clare, CEO and General Manager of Classic 107.3. "The opportunity to study with gifted instructors, make music with talented peers, and culminate later with a broadcast on the station is ideal programming. We appreciate the partnership with CMS, and look forward to hearing these young musicians."

The CMS Preparatory Program (Prep) is a rigorous chamber music program for advanced high school musicians. Developed by Vera Parkin, and now directed by Davin Rubicz, students in Prep experience high-caliber chamber music coaching from professional musicians, performance opportunities, mentoring, theory, multi-track recording, and special events.
