Jesus Cervantes: Outstanding Graduate, School of Music and Dance

Outstanding Graduate for the School of Music and Dance, Jesus Cervantes, has performed many times at SDSU, as well as with the National Orchestra Institute. Last summer, he participated in the Domaine Forget International Music Academy Festival in Quebec, Canada.

“During my month at this incredible festival, I was immersed in an incredibly rich environment of learning and performing and was able to form lifelong connections with some of the best musicians from around the world.” said Cervantes. “The instant bonds I was easily able to form through music are a testament to the universality and power that music holds, and I have been inspired to continue broadening my global musical perspective as a result of experiences such as this one.”

The recipient of both the Fisch/Axelrod Music Scholarship and the SDSU Merit Scholars Scholarship, Cervantes is well-recognized for his academic perseverance and dedication to his craft.

With career goals that include both the performance and educational aspects of being a musician, Cervantes recognizes the impact that his studies have had. “During my time at SDSU, I have worked closely with colleagues coming from a wide range of musical backgrounds, and I have been fortunate enough to be placed in a number of different musical settings and work environments,” said Cervantes.
