The CMC Conservatory Series concerts feature advanced CMC students, alumni, and professional artists performing side-by-side.
CMC Conservatory Series
The Conservatory Series began in 2004 as a way to connect students and professionals not only in education, but also in performance.
The series also represents a partnership with Chamber Music Columbus, which routinely brings world-famous chamber musicians to town.
These visiting musicians conduct a mini-residency at CMC, during which they prepare a performance with CMC students. This allows students a firsthand experience of how professional musicians rehearse and perform.
