Contributions for the Future of CMS

As the world addresses the fallout from COVID-19, CMS has been adversely affected financially. If 75% of our membership contributes as requested, we will raise approximately $200,000, enough for us to maintain current (reduced) staffing levels until normalcy returns, and to continue our leadership role in higher education for the future. Please select the contribution button below if you are able to assist in this effort.

Our Mission

The College Music Society promotes music teaching and learning, musical creativity and expression, research and dialogue, and diversity and interdisciplinary interaction. A consortium of college, conservatory, university, and independent musicians and scholars interested in all disciplines of music, the Society provides leadership and serves as an agent of change by addressing concerns facing music in higher education.
