Our most popular fundraiser of the year, the Playathon is a fun performance opportunity for students and teachers to raise money to benefit Musical Empowerment in Carrboro, NC; an organization which fosters artistic and personal growth through music for children in under-served communities.
Each year CHMTA offers a non-competitive performance festival in the spring, in which students perform in a masterclass setting for a guest judge and clinician. Our festival is in two divisions, piano and voice.
