2023-2024 Recital Season Sponsorship Opportunities

We invite you to join fellow business leaders as a sponsor of Community Music School’s 2023-2024 student performances. All recitals are held in our Dorothy H. Baker Recital Hall and typically draw an audience of 1,000+ people over the course of the season, creating an attractive venue to showcase your organization’s support for the arts, music, and education to diverse and engaged audiences.  

Please consider supporting CMS students with a sponsorship at the $2,000 level this year. Season Sponsors and Supporting Sponsors enjoy unique benefits, including VIP tickets to our Gala Recital & Reception on May 11, 2024.  All sponsors and program advertisers will be recognized at all six student recitals and across all CMS communication channels over the course of the season (October 2023 – June 2024).  In the 2022-2023 year, CMS experienced 54% enrollment growth with nearly 600 unique students attending in-person music lessons, group classes, bands, choirs, ensembles, and of course, recitals!  That also means we have a record demand for need-based financial aid that enables students from low-income families to enroll.  In 2023-24, we are funding over $100,000 in financial aid to 55% of our students under age 18.  Your sponsorship will directly support these students.

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.  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 organization. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Kulp, Assistant Director, 610-435-7725 x402, or lisa@cmslv.org.
