Vocal Performance Practicum with Jonathan Smucker & Richard Fey
This workshop provides an opportunity to perform a song for fellow singers in an informal setting, and to receive feedback on your performance from faculty. Singers in the practicum will have the opportunity to rework all or part of the piece, and may sing with our provided faculty pianist or self accompany. Interested singers should email their name, song title, and timing (five minutes or less) to Jonathan Smucker at jsmucker@sfcmc.org by September 4th.

Meet CMC’s Neighbor, Mission District Therapy
Mission District Therapy will have a table at CMC Sunday. Learn about injury prevention for musicians of all levels. Meet with physical therapists from Mission District Therapy who can answer your questions and concerns about how you can stay injury-free while you develop your musical skills, enabling you to pursue your passion for years to come. You may also speak with them about an existing injury.
