Covid-19 updates                  

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic CityMusic Columbus and our music programs are currently on hiatus as schools work to keep their children and families safe. We are pausing our educational programs until it's deemed safe to re-start our classroom music lessons. 

What can be done in the meantime? Donating to us though Amazon Smile and your Kroger plus account is a free, easy, and extremely useful way to support us! You can easily update your Amazon and Kroger accounts and select CityMusic Columbus as your charity of choice. We plan to resume and expand our preschool music lessons as soon as we are able and your support is a great help! THANK YOU! 



Established in 1981, CityMusic Columbus is an arts organization that has long had a two fold mission of creating unique live music events and providing musical outreach to   Columbus youth. Moving forward we are shifting away from presenting and focusing on growing our partnerships with a variety of social service and arts organizations to provide music-making and music-educational opportunities to under-served children in Columbus. Our primary partnership at present is with the YMCA Columbus where we provide Head Start Music and Learning in five Head Start programs.

Music enhances learning, literacy, responsibility, spirituality, and creativity, and children who receive music education are better equipped to excel in academic activities and to participate in their communities. CityMusic Columbus can enhance the lives of citizens in our community by filling the gaps in exposure to musical



Proceeds from this performance will help support CityMusic Columbus to further expand music programs in Columbus metro area Head Start programs and enable additional music programs in Columbus Metropolitan Library branches.
