Field Day at CMC!

Celebrating our founder, Gertrude Field, and our mission of music for everyone with free performances, workshops and lessons at Community Music Center’s Mission District Branch.

Who: CMC’s community of students, alumni,faculty, supporters, and guest artists.

What: Field Day is CMC’s second annual open house and performathon. A performathon is similar to a fundraising walk, but instead of walking, participants perform in order to raise money for scholarships at Community Music Center. Look for guest artist performances throughout the day, as well as free workshops, lesson demos, an instrument petting zoo, and lots more fun during Field Day.

Why: We will bring the CMC community together to celebrate our beloved institution and the visionary founder behind it, Gertrude Field.
