  • CIM@CMA: Music in the Galleries

    October 5, 2016, 6:00 pm
    Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Blvd., Cleveland

    The popular series of monthly concerts in the galleries featuring young artists from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the joint program with Case Western Reserve University’s early and baroque music programs enters its fifth season. Outstanding conservatory musicians present mixed programs of chamber music amid the museum’s collections for a unique and intimate experience—concerts regularly feature instruments from the museum’s keyboard collection.

    From standard repertoire to unknown gems, these early-evening, hour-long performances are a delightful after-work encounter or the start of a night out. Programs announced the week of the performance.

    Free, no tickets required. More information is available at:


With #GivingTuesday Campaign supporting the Cleveland School of the Arts

On Thursday, November 22, we ate and gave thanks.
On Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we rushed to get doorbusting deals.
On Tuesday, November 27, we join others across the country in GIVING back!

The Cleveland Institute of Music is putting the GIVING back into the "giving season" by using #GivingTuesday to launch an 8-week campaign to support the next generation of classical musicians training at the Cleveland School of the Arts (part of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District).

CIM staff, faculty and students regularly work with students and faculty at CSA, so we see firsthand the value of the institution as well as the challenge they face with funding and supplies. That's why CIM is coordinating an effort to provide much-needed musical instruments, accessories, books, lessons and more to the school and its students.

Will you join us? It's Easy!
Between Tuesday, November 27, 2012, and Tuesday, January 22, 2013:

  • Donate an item from CSA's wish list or make a financial contribution* towards the purchase of needed items.
  • Fill out the donor form, noting your gift and the (estimated) value.
  • Drop off your donation in Pogue Lobby at CIM (11021 East Boulevard, Cleveland).
  • Spread the word! Tell your friends about #GivingTuesday and CIM's campaign to support CSA.
  • Follow CIM (and #GivingTuesday) on Facebook, InstantEncore, Pinterest and Twitter
  • Attend the 22nd Annual Black Heritage Concert in Kulas Hall on Sunday, January 27, when CIM will present CSA with all the collected contributions.

*Please make checks payable to the Cleveland School of the Arts.
