FD email graphicThe deadline to sign up for CMC's Field Day Performathon is less than a week away!

Find out how easy it was for these performers to start their fundraising campaigns:

"In place of gifts on our birthdays, my friends and I choose charities to support. This fall, I chose CMC as my birthday charity, and exceeded my Performathon fundraising goal." 
- Debra, recorder student

"Signing up for Field Day is really easy. It took me five minutes to sign up online, and now I've got my own fundraising page to send to all my friends and family. I'm happy to help raise money for scholarships with my Young Musicians Program ensembles so that other students, like myself, can enjoy music to the limits!" 
- Hannah, Young Musicians Program violin student

The sign-up deadline is Thursday, October 20.
