Breaking ground on a new century

January 20, 2022

On Wednesday, February 16, CMC will hold a festive groundbreaking event for the long-awaited campus expansion project. This short ceremony will feature students and faculty from the Children’s Chorus, Mission District Young Musicians Program, Mission District Older Adult Choirs, and members of the SFUSD Mariachi Program performing “If I Had a Hammer” and “Las Mañanitas.” Participating faculty will include Martha Rodríguez-Salazar, Beth Wilmurt, Miguel Govea, Susan Peña, Sharon Wayne, and Tregar Otton. The event will take place in CMC’s courtyard at the Mission District Branch

As CMC celebrates its 100th birthday this year, its mission remains unchanged: music for all people, regardless of their financial means. This expansion into the neighboring building at 552 Capp Street will allow CMC to increase accessibility, provide more music spaces, and improve the quality of our facilities. Highlights of the expansion include, additional large classrooms for ensembles and group classes, another recital hall for performances, and ADA accessibility. This expansion will enhance the current tuition-free programs and enable the launch of new programs that address critical community needs. Construction is scheduled to begin January 30 and will take approximately 12 months to complete. Construction updates can be found here.
