Pamela Martinez

Harmonizing with Nature: Pamela Martinez’s believes in growth and healing through nature, art and sound.

Meet Pamela Martinez, a San Antonio native who honed her craft in the bustling currents of Brooklyn, NY for 11 years, before returning home to the River City in 2018. Martinez has been celebrating nature, infrastructure, and art along the San Antonio River since her return. Her first connection to The SA River Foundation began when SARF first displayed her sonic sculpture The Artemisia Wind Harp at Confluence Park from 2021 – 2023. Soon after Martinez created The DAM! Series, free public performances seeking to bring awareness to local waterways and their importance in cultural connection.

With a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Berklee College of Music, Pamela Martinez’s creative currents run deep, spanning from performances at Carnegie Hall to San Francisco’s historic Fillmore Theater and beyond. Currently, she is pursuing an MFA in Music Composition at Vermont College of Fine Arts, further enriching her diverse artistic journey.

Martinez’s talents are as diverse as the landscapes she traverses as an educator, administrator, composer and director. Now, alongside her role at the SA River Foundation, Martinez orchestrates site-specific performances that harmonize with the natural world, using sound as her medium. From touring the globe as a genre-hopping musician to directing immersive performances like Whisperlodge, hailed by The New York Times as “an unusual mix of theater and therapy,” Martinez hopes to use her diverse skill set to further the SARF’s mission.

Her creative current flows through collaborations with esteemed institutions like The McNay Art Museum, Disney’s REDCAT Theater and The Park Ave Armory, where she brings her unique blend of music, healing, and immersive art to audiences worldwide. Whether she’s strumming her harp, leading sound meditations, or directing performances that echo the rhythms of the river, Martinez’s artistry is a celebration of nature’s symphony. Explore her world at, where the river meets the stage, and creativity knows no bounds.
