Campus and Community Engagement

Cornell Concert Series believes in musical engagements as a community building activity (as both civic engagement and ethical performance practice). Thank you to our generous Community Benefactors whose support directly impacts this programming!

In partnership with Engaged Cornell, we have helped launch the Engaged Performance course within Cornell’s music department. During COVID-19, we have moved our programming online to create a series of interviews with CCS performers and other musical thought-leaders. Enjoy them here!

Since September 2017, our engagement programs have brought over 1,000 Cornell campus and Ithaca community members into interactions with Cornell Concert Series artists.
