In the mid 1980s, when CCMS was located at the Kimball Jenkins Estate, many conversations about the future of the Music School were held under the flowering apple tree there. Today, a wonderful community of musicians flourish at Wall St. and the orchard continues to grow.

CCMS has a circle of supporters whose commitment and leadership are demonstrated through their generous contributions. Ours include students, parents, faculty, trustees and friends. We call them the Orchard Society and they help us ensure a sustainable future.

In years past, membership to the Orchard Society required a pledge of at least $1,000 per year for a minimum of three years. Today, we are making the Orchard Society more flexible and inclusive by also considering other factors such as how long someone has been donating and how involved they are with CCMS (as students, recital/concert/fundraiser attendees, and more.)
