The Civic Music Association (CMA) of the Bosque Arts Center is dedicated to promoting music throughout our community and beyond.
The CMA aims to provide opportunities for all citizens–students and adults–to experience performances of the musical arts and to encourage the appreciation, education and development of individual and group talents.
The CMA supports the Bosque Chorale, Showcase of Young Musicians, Music Scholarships, Children’s Summer Music Camp, and other events such as The Arts of Christmas and the McKenzie Malone Soprano and Ribeiro Piano Duo concerts. In addition, varied music performances are featured at each quarterly CMA meeting.
We welcome, encourage and appreciate your participation and help in enriching musical experiences in our community.
