Our Board President, Keith May, adds:

Each year we reach out to people like you to help us keep the doors of the Children's Chorus of Maryland open. Those open doors provide an opportunity for a young person to gain the tools they need to succeed in life. You see, CCM is not just a music education program; it offers a foundational approach to success. Your contribution will lead directly to the success of our students.
There are other things you can do to help CCM besides a direct contribution. First, if the organization you work for has a donation program, such as matching funds, please encourage your employer to donate. Second, please tell local organizations where you shop and do business about CCM and encourage them to donate.

Founded in 1976 by distinguished music educator and composer Dr. Betty Bertaux, Children's Chorus of Maryland and School of Music (CCM) is one of the oldest and most distinguished programs of vocal literacy training and choral music education in the United States. For many years, CCM was one of very few choral music education programs in the country which offered separate musicianship training classes in addition to chorus rehearsals, and which met twice per week as recommended by experts in the field of music education. Several other children’s choral music education groups have now styled their musicianship training classes after those of CCM.
