CCM provides opportunities for choristers to perform as an ensemble and as individuals in workshops, festivals, operas, ballets, and community events. Variety extends beyond musical repertoire to include venues and collaborations as choristers go on tour and work with professional musicians, performers, music educators, and other choristers nationally and abroad.

Choose a performance season on the left to view some of the places and people with whom CCM have had the pleasure and privilege of making music together over the years.
