Formed in 1980 and named in honor of CIM's first Director, the Ernest Bloch Society represents the core of our voluntary support. Known for his skills as a great educator and as one of the finest composers of the 20th century, Ernest Bloch served as a model of what is best about a conservatory education - a unique learning environment borne of the interaction of gifted students with artists/educators who have reached the top of their profession.
As a result of an October 2007 decision by CIM's Board of Trustees, the initial Bloch Society contribution level was changed, after 27 years, from $1,000 to $1,500. CIM is committed to providing excellence in education and this excellence is maintained through generous private support. With the cost of a college education continuing to rise, there is a vital need not only to encourage our donors to raise their level of giving, but also to attract new donors to the Bloch Society.
