Special Features

 

To explore ways in which musicians in higher education can interact with the cultural life of various communities, the 2017 Committee on Conference Engagement has organized opportunities for CMS members to share musical experiences with the San Antonio community during its National Conference.

Conference attendees are cordially invited to attend all engagement presentations except those noted as “Private Event.”

To encourage diverse programming and showcase the work of CMS member composers and performers, this year’s Program Committee issued two special calls. The first call invited composers to submit original works, while the second call invited members to perform a variety of music focusing on the San Antonio area or featuring works of composers for whom the year 2017 is significant. Responses to these calls resulted in the programming of the following three exciting concerts:
