CMS Student Recitals

Performing in front of a live audience is an important part of the Community Music School experience and is key to developing well-rounded musicians. CMS encourages students of all levels and ages to perform when they are ready, with permission from their teacher. Numerous free performance opportunities are available, including both in-house recitals and community programs. Thanks to our generous donors, all CMS recitals are free and open to the public; there is also no fee for students who perform.  Community Music School programs are updated to our calendar, so check back regularly for the most current content. 

Follow CMS on YouTube to watch recordings of past recitals and receive notifications for future virtual recitals!  Your follows and views help us reach a larger audience and achieve our mission.
