Q: When will CCM return to 1317 Main Street for private lessons, group classes, and other CCM events?

Together we can keep our students and their families safe by following the Massachusetts COVID-19 guidelines and recommendations.  We expect to determine plans for the fall by the end of July - early August time period. Please check back periodically for updates.

Q: Will there be a May Adult Soirée this year?

For adult CCM students, the semester-end Soirée will be on May 15 @ 6 pm. Virtually meet and share a piece you've been working, or come and be with friends. This is something we usually do in person, of course, but here we are. 

The format will work like this if you'd like to perform: video record a performance of your piece (stating your name, composer, and song before playing so we know who you are!) and use this LINK to upload your video and give us the information we need for a program by Thursday the 14th at 9 am. 

If you'd like to join the party and not play, please use the  LINK to RSVP. While all are invited to attend the party, we are aiming to have around 60-70 minutes of music. 

Please remember to read our Best Practices for Videotaping a Home Recital before recording your performances. Have fun with this, and we look forward to seeing all the performances!
