For more than 70 years, the Women's Committee has proudly supported the talented young musicians of the Conservatory.
The Women's Committee is one of CIM's greatest sources of support, providing time, talent and treasure. Its 200+ members are an important resource for students. They strive to make musicians feel welcomed and supported from the students' first audition until they walk across the stage at Commencement.
With a mission to support and strengthen the Cleveland Institute of Music and its students, the Women's Committee consists of the general membership and an elected Board of Directors.
Members of the Committee dedicate their time and efforts to add to the allure and history of CIM by providing the greater Cleveland community with opportunities to experience the talents of CIM students and faculty.

- Student Audition Luncheons
