Amrita Roy Chowdhury,
"A very enjoyable and enrichful team bonding event. Strongly recommending to all. Well done, thumbs up!""
"absolutely LOVE attending CPAF Music Conference! It is, by far, a much more in depth and meaningful Professional Development opportunity for me than what I get all year long through school. I highly enjoy being able to connect with other musicians from around the province and being able to discuss the successes we share, and the challenges we all face."
"With all of my heart, I can say I have left CPAF Music Conference every single year for a decade completely inspired, amazed, excited, and feeling like I had connected with many other professionals like myself who otherwise can often feel isolated and alone."
To showcase talent in the field of performing arts as well as to provide a platform to new upcoming talent in these fields.
In order to achieve its objective, CPAF organises a classical music conference every year under the banner of Chowdhury House Music Conference.
As a not-for-profit foundation that encourages, promotes and supports innovative work in the field of the performing arts.
