City Arts Camp is a collaborative program presented by the Allentown Art Museum, the Allentown Symphony Association, The Baum School of Art, Civic Theatre of Allentown, Community Music School, and Repertory Dance Theatre. Campers participate in activities and classes at various downtown arts venues, all led by professional staff from each organization.

Online Student Music Classes


For the safety of our students and staff, the School has suspended camps and group classes during the COVID-19 pandemic.The CMS building will remain closed until the state-mandated COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, and the Director and the CMS Board of Directors determine that it is safe to resume in-person lessons. We encourage students to use this time to develop their skills in their chosen instrument by signing up for online private lessons.
