We are excited for Performathon and this year’s Young Composer’s Festival!

For those new to these events:

Performathon is an annual community based event where we welcome students of all ages to come together to share music with our community. Each year we encourage and hear students share this magic with us from their first scales and pieces to more advanced repertoire that span many styles/genres, as well as self-composed works. 

Young Composer’s Festival is a series of themed workshops, panel discussions, and concerts by and for students, aimed to inspire them to create music of their own, in partnership with the New Gallery Concert Series. 

This year’s theme is “Living in your own Wilderness”: How do each of us grapple with our own bubbles? How do we create our own sense of wilderness, especially in times of isolation?


Event Format:

This year’s Performathon is a HYBRID event, offering students options ONLINE or IN-PERSON, taking place as a series of shorter concerts that will be premiered in Allen Hall and streamed live through Zoom across three performances: February 03 – 05, 2022.

This year’s Performathon will also feature a 50/50 raffle!

What is a 50/50 raffle? By purchasing a raffle ticket, you are entering for a chance to win 50% of the raffle proceeds – the other 50% will go directly towards supporting the musicians of CMCB!

Raffle tickets are $10 each – but the more tickets you purchase, the higher your chance is to win!

To participate in the raffle, you can contribute in one of two ways –

  • If you are in-person, DipJars preset to $10 will be on-site – all you have to do is dip your card, and fill out a ticket with your name, email address and gift amount.
  • If you are tuning in virtually, use our text-to-donate option – text “cmcb” to 243725 (BIDPAL), click the link, and make a gift!

Visitors and concert attendees will be required to complete a contact tracing form using a paper log or their mobile device. Well-fitted masks are required for all visitors ages 2 and up.  For more information, please visit our website to review CMCB’s Health and Safety Guidelines

Although in the past we have strongly encouraged Performers to invite as many audience members as they like, we ask that you be mindful of how many guests you ask to attend this event in person.
