Celebrating its 40th season, Children's Chorus of Maryland and School of Music (CCM) is one of the oldest programs for choral music education and performance in the United States. Under the direction of Artistic Director Susan Bialek, the music Conservatory program features highly qualified teachers, small classes and in-depth vocal enrichment to provide children with a complete musical education and choral experience. Children as young as 5 ½ are encouraged to audition for one of the Conservatory’s three choirs. Classes and rehearsals are offered twice weekly from September to May at CCM’s facility near downtown Towson and performances are held each semester. Children’s Chorus of Maryland welcomes families whose children attend public, private and parochial schools as well as those who are homeschooled. Merit and need-based scholarships are available. In addition to its Conservatory program, CCM offers its “Crickets” classes in September and January for children ages 4 to 6. This once a week class allows children to explore their musical potential through a variety of games and playful activities. “Music in the Meadow”, a music and nature summer camp, is held in August for children entering Kindergarten through 2nd grade. Singing, crafts, outdoor scavenger hunts and games are just some of the engaging activities that fill this one week half-day camp.
