2023 CMS Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference

2023 CMS Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference
March 25-26, 2023
Prince George's Community College
Largo, Maryland



CMS welcomes to its Regional Conferences all music professionals, including those (a) in academia (full-time and adjunct faculty, community college faculty, students, and retired faculty), (b) in the music industry, and (c) active as independent musicians and scholars. Those holding current CMS membership are entitled to receive a discount on registration fees. Attendees may belong to any CMS regional chapter. Those not holding CMS membership will be charged the non-member conference rate. 



All persons who derive professional benefit from presenting work during a CMS conference (1) must hold current membership in CMS and (2) are required to register for the full conference. This includes anyone whose name appears in the program: all collaborative pianists, performers*, composers, panelists, and presenters. Likewise, any presenter who connects to the conference by electronic means (e.g., Zoom/Skype) must hold current membership and register for the event. Co-authors of research papers and posters must register for and attend the conference as a condition of having their name listed in the program.

At its discretion, the Program Committee may exempt from the membership and registration fee requirements specific individuals, such as invited guest speakers or panelists who are non-music professionals (e.g., lawyers, librarians, neurobiologists, etc.). However, it is the responsibility of the individual who submitted the proposal to, upon acceptance, request such an exemption for all non-music professionals involved in their presentation. 

* Performers of works by invited CMS composers are neither required to be members nor pay registration fees unless they are invited to the program via the Call for Participation or plan to attend conference sessions in addition to the concert in which they are performing. In this case, they are expected to pay the full registration fee accordingly.
