CSO's collaboration with CUMEP


This year, the Cornell Symphony Orchestra has begun an outreach program to give back to the greater Ithaca community. We are most excited about a new collaborative venture with the Community Unity Music Education Program (CUMEP), which provides low cost instruction to youth of limited financial resources. Members of the CSO have volunteered to serve as mentors in this program. Through weekly visits to Beverly J. Martin Elementary School, these volunteers teach students basic skills in individual musicianship and what it means to have music in their everyday lives. We hope to share our passion for music with the youth in this program and inspire them to achieve great things, musical and otherwise. -Melanie Adamsky, Outreach coordinator
