We wanted to take a moment on this day before Thanksgiving to send a special thank you to the residents of Cuyahoga County and the Cuyahoga Arts & Culture organization for their ongoing support of the Cleveland Institute of Music.

Through the generous grant we receive, CIM is able to host hundreds of concerts each year—both in our own music halls and at venues throughout Cuyahoga County (and sometimes beyond). Most of the concerts are presented at no charge, offering residents an opportunity to experience the artistry of our amazingly talented students, faculty as well as guest artists.

Because of the recent renewal of our CAC Grant, CIM also will be able to continue collaborating with other local organizations (such as MOCA Cleveland, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and the Cleveland Museum of Artjust to name a few!) and visiting hospitals, senior centers and schools in underserved communities, taking the gift of music and music education to people who appreciate and benefit so much from it.

Above are photos of┬ájust a few of CIM’s community arts and culture enrichment activities and education outreach events from the past year.
