Friends of CCM

The Friends of CCM is a group of volunteers whose love of the performing and media arts extends beyond the audience rows. They have been helping students achieve their dreams before the footlights, behind the scenes or in front of a microphone or camera for over 35 years. Today, the organization has 600 members and an active board that raises over $300,000 each year for CCM's extraordinary students and faculty.

Membership contributions provide scholarships for the many talented CCM undergraduate and graduate students. The Friends of CCM support is critical to maintain an edge in the competitive world of higher education. In order to remain one of the nation's leading performing and media arts conservatories, CCM must provide additional scholarship support to all students. Now more than ever your membership will help attract the brightest and most talented students.

With several levels of membership, there is a place for everyone to get involved. Special benefits depend on your level of commitment, and can range from a listing in the Friends roster in CCM publications to CCM tickets and parking passes to special Friends-only receptions. Whether your interest is in music, opera, musical theatre, drama, dance or electronic media, your generosity will aid the "stars of tomorrow" whose talents touch our hearts and stir our imaginations.
