Welcome to the Northeast Chapter

Welcome to the Northeast Chapter of The College Music Society! We are glad you’re here! Come join the over 750 members from Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, the Maritime Provinces, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Our members find a home in CMS because of its diversity; our membership’s sub-disciplines range from music performance to music theory to ethnomusicology, and everything in between.

The Northeast Chapter of CMS hosts a conference every year in the Spring. These conferences feature papers, lecture-recitals, performances, a concert devoted to new music by CMS composers, panels, keynote and pedagogical speakers, and of course --MOST IMPORTANTLY-- food and FELLOWSHIP.

I hope that you will want to continue to be — or begin to become — involved in our Chapter, and will submit a proposal for the upcoming conference, which will be held March 4-6 at Onandaga Community College in Syracuse NY. Please refer to the Call for Program Participation and Call for Scores for more information. If you are working on various proposals or simply have ideas percolating, please feel free to attend the conference for inspiration and community!

Please feel free to contact me at any time if you would like more information about our organization.

Best wishes,

Karen Becker
President, CMS Northeast Chapter
