Recital Review
April Student Recital
On April 3, fifteen CMS students performed for family and friends in the Rodale Room at Miller Symphony Hall.  The program featured many talented piano students, and was complemented with trumpet solos by Isaiah Albert-Stein and Julia Young.

Faculty-Student Recital
On February 28, almost 50 CMS students and faculty performed in this special annual recital in the Rodale Room.  The 2-hour performance was highlighted by a special appearance by The CMS Collective.  
Welcome (back) to a  new CMS faculty member!
Kate Uhler has rejoined the CMS faculty and will be teaching clarinet, guitar, piano, viola, violin, and voice at both our Allentown and Reading locations.  She will also be helping with our outreach programs in the Allentown School District.  Welcome Kate!
