CMC Partners with Equity Community Builders to Develop Expanded Mission Campus:
Exciting – and busy – times are ahead for CMC! For those of you who haven’t heard the good news, Community Music Center has purchased the Victorian house next door to our Mission District Branch on Capp Street. There is a lot of work to do between now and the day we open the doors of our new Mission Campus and we are happy to announce that we have a great team assembled to help us. A key component of this team is our project manager, Equity Community Builders.
