Sponsorship Opportunities

2023 Spring Season Sponsorship Opportunities

We invite you to join fellow business leaders and become a sponsor of Community Music School’s 2023 spring performances. Corporate sponsors and advertisers enjoy unique benefits, and all sponsors will be recognized at our four spring student recitals and across all CMS communication channels.

Please consider supporting quality music education and promote your business with a $1,000 sponsorship package or program ad this year. 

*This corporate sponsorship opportunity is the only time CMS will ask for your support this fiscal year, since we have opted to take a break from our traditional Spring Brunch/Auction fundraiser in 2023.

Performing in front of a live audience is an important part of each CMS student’s growth and development. We encourage students of all ages and abilities to perform in recitals when they are ready, with the approval of their teachers. Thanks to our generous donors, all CMS recitals are free and open to the public; there is also no fee for students who perform.  All recitals are held in the Dorothy H. Baker Recital Hall at CMS and typically draw an audience of 600+ people over the course of the season, creating an attractive venue to showcase your company’s support for the arts, music, and education to diverse and engaged audiences.  

CMS has experienced 64% enrollment growth this year as we’ve welcomed back former students after the “pandemic pause.” We also have scores of new students who have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to attend in-person music lessons, bands, choirs, ensembles, and of course, recitals!  CMS is a nonprofit, 501(c) (3) organization, and corporate sponsors like you help us provide all students with access to the life-long benefits of quality music education, regardless of their background, age, ability, or financial circumstances.  

We encourage you to review the sponsorship and advertising opportunities below.  Please reply via mail, email, or online form with the best option(s) for your business. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Kulp, Assistant Director, 610-435-7725 x402, or lisa@cmslv.org.  On behalf of CMS students, teachers, staff, and our Board of Directors, we thank you for sponsoring and supporting music education.

Sincerely,

Jeff Reed, Executive Director

Michael Yeager, President, Board of Directors
